Prominent Designer A586; ca. 1953; Oldric Royce - Misses' Dress. "American designer Oldric Royce molds a dashing and dramatic torso line that’s adroitly angled from the bosom right to the hips. The effect is a slimming, long silhouette you’ll find very exciting and very few. Drawing inspiration from both his European background and our way of life, Mr. Royce likes clothes to be simple, versatile, and to play up the woman (rather than what she’s wearing). The custom originals he designs in his New York salon carry fabulous price tags. Pattern A586 was originally interpreted in pure silk shantung but Mr. Royce suggests faille, taffeta, or one of those gleaming, taffetized silks that look so very new for spring. And if you’re going South, linen, or a silk print would be elegant— with that completely special brand of elegance that’s completely Oldric Royce". (as stated in Waco Tribune Herald, January 11, 1953)
