I am looking to expand my MA dissertation by concentrating on the production of mass produced blouses. During initial research in museum collections I found blouses with a variety of Bourne and Hollingsworth labels including those stating 'manufactured by Bourne and Hollingsworth' indicating they were not just store labels. Another possible manufacturer was JAS Shoolbred who also produced furniture. Shoolbred blouses were upmarket and often featured in society journal The Ladies' Field both in editorials and advertising. Any suggestions gratefully received!
