About Kay Windsor:
The Kay Windsor label was formed in 1940 by the Kay Windsor Frocks company of Boston, Massachusetts. They were a maker of moderately-priced dresses. In 1954 Kay Windsor Frocks produced a line of “Private Secretary” dresses in conjunction with a popular television program of the same name. The star of the show, Ann Sothern, was featured in the dress advertisements, saying “a dress chosen especially for you by Ann Sothern.”
Kay Windsor was bought by Vanity Fair in 1971 as part of that company’s plan to expand into women’s knitwear. At that time Kay Windsor was making five lines of dresses and women’s sportswear.
In 1977 Vanity Fair had an agreement with JC Penney in which Kay Windsor dresses were sold under the Penney’s label

Leslie Fay was the clothing business founded by Fred Pomerantz. In 1942, Fred Pomerantz began making uniforms for the women in the US armed services. The government had done a study of statistics concerning the measurements of the typical female figure, and this information was provided to Pomerantz in order to help him make uniforms that properly fit.
After the war ended, Pomerantz decided to produce a line of women’s clothing using the same sizing as he had used during the war. In 1947 he founded Leslie Fay, which he named after his daughter. Leslie Fay became a major maker of affordable and attractive dresses and sportswear marketed toward the middle aged.
In 1965, Herbert Kasper joined the firm, designing under the Joan Leslie label, a slightly higher priced line.
