Oh my goodness the dress with all the roses on it puts me in mind of a dress my mother used to ware that patterned exactly like it. I don't remember if it had roses but I think it did. All I do remember is it was red and the exact same pattern. Now I wonder if it was a Sayde dress. If can find a picture of my mother in that dress I will e-mail it.

I'm glad you all liked this piece. It's just so important to document these 20th century dressmakers while the information is still available!

I actually found a 1950s Jerry Gilden dress this weekend, and I'll post photos of it later. It's a very nice frock!

Wonderful bio! Interesting that she later worked for Carlye - I'm wondering if some of their early (and incredibly detailed) dresses I've seen were designed by Sayde.

chiming in late to say this is a fascinating life story - thanks for publishing it for all to read. And very much in agreement with Sarah and you on who are the most interesting 'women of fashion'.

"It's a bit ironic that we remember the names of designers who worked to clothe the wealthiest women, but not those who produced beautiful clothing that most women could afford."

I couldn't agree with you more. Excellent piece!

What an interesting and in depth piece on Jerry Gilden. I especially enjoyed learning about Sayde and her successful rise to the top in her field. And thank you so much for featuring a Gilden dress from the shop. :)

Thank you so much for shedding some light on this company. I have always admired Jerry Gilden dresses. Knowing the background story about the wonderful lady who had such a keen sense of style makes it all so much more interesting. It's always nice to know about what goes on behind the scenes. I will appreciate their dresses all the more after reading your blog.
