About Horrockses Fashion (via costumesociety.org.uk)
Established in 1946 by Crewdson and Company Ltd, Horrockses Fashions took the post-war clothing market by storm. Horrockses used a combination of in-house textile artists and well-known artists to create their prints. Queen Elizabeth II opted for several Horrockses dresses on her 1953 Commonwealth tour. Women would have spent £4-£7 on a Horrockses dress, which, at the time would have been around a weeks’ worth of wages. A Horrockses frock was considered a ‘splurge’ item for many women.
