ABOUT LILLI ANN
"To the astonishment of many, there was no individual named “Lilli Ann”. Lilli Ann was a clothing label whose popularity peaked in the 1940's - 1950's. Because of good quality materials and fashionable design, Lilli Ann dresses, coats and suits are still very sought after among vintage collectors.

Adolph Schuman began his dress wholesaling business in 1933 in San Francisco. He named his company “Lilli Ann” after his wife Lillian. He built 2 factory buildings on the corner of 16th and Harrison which were considered state-of-the-art and which were still in use well into the 1980's. By the 1940's sales exceeded 1 million dollars annually.

Following WW II Schuman opened a Lilli Ann show room in Paris. Schuman became active in promoting fashions between San Francisco and Paris and organized the “San Francisco to Paris Fashion Show”. The shows consisted of lavish runway productions conducted in both cities. These shows allowed Schuman to network with important Paris fashion designers such as Coco Channel and Cristobal Balenciaga. Balenciaga provided, anonymously, designs for the Lilli Ann line as a personal favor to Schuman.

Lilli Ann clothing were made from the best textiles imported from France and Italy. Initially “San Francisco” was on the Lilli Ann labels. When Schuman opened a showroom in Paris the labels then read “Lilli Ann - Paris - San Francisco”. Because Schuman placed very large orders from the Blin & Blin textile mill in France, their label will at times appear along with the Lilli Ann label.

The Lilli Ann company is best known for its suits and coats. Many of the designs for the suits were along the style of “Hollywood Glamour” and were known for being well tailored with hand finished seams. Fur and/or jewels would be included in the design of many of the suits and coats. The coats were frequently made in Paris of woven (“tisse”) wool and the label indicated it as such. Because of their glamorous style, Lilli Ann suits and dresses were ideal for special occasions such as cocktail parties and the theater.

The Lilli Ann company went in different directions in terms of designers and fashion lines throughout the “60's and ‘70's. After the death of Adolph Schuman in 1985 the Lilli Ann Company was run by his second wife Jo Schuman and son-in-law Daniel Benatar. The Company was eventually sold to an Asian conglomerate Jaran Inc.

Vintage clothing collectors will always appreciate the Lilli Ann label for its glamorous style, quality tailoring and fit. A vintage closet is not complete unless it has a “Lilli Ann”.


Cute! The style looks like it could have been make recently. The coat is really soft but there is not a materials label so I am not certain of the material. It's in very good condition what ever it is.
