“My stepmother, May Barlow Cummings, designed Lorrie Deb dresses in San Francisco. I would love to hear if you are aware of ;any dresses of designs she made.
Thanks for your time.”
I have many dresses made by Lorrie Deb, how exciting to know your Step mother was involved in this lovely process of designing the dresses.
I found this advertisement I thought you might be interested in. Hmm… too bad we couldn’t do a little time travel right now!!
Thanks for your inquiry. 🙂 hugs!
I love old things! I’ve been collecting Vintage and antiques since I was practically a kid! I love researching the Edwardian era. … I am so… sentimental and concerned with things of the past…my family and friends cease to talk to me at times. I love period movies: Horseman on the Roof, Wuthering Heights, The Woodlanders, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Bleak house, and John Adams. My favorite actress is Juliette Binoche, in the movie Chocolat. I know it’s just a movie but, I feel if people would act that kind the world would be a better place to live.
I am on a constant mission to discover treasures; I love one-of-a-kind items, no one else has. Because I buy too much, occasionally I sell my items; Vintage prom, purses, antiques and incredible Edwardian jewelry. Originally I started this blog for myself, my little space to keep all my research notes, price realized and my photo creations. It seems there is more to this blog now, hopefully you can feel my love for the past.
Have a lovely day! Love

I recently bought the dress in the ad that was posted and am in love with it! It has some aging to it, rips and some stains, but still beautiful!
Hello Mary Michael. My name is Virginia, and May Barlow Cummings was my great-Aunt. My maternal grandfather’s sister, his name was John Harry. I have a few of my Aunt’s designs, portfolio, and a couple of actual dresses. Aunt May sent my mother to a French dress design school in the 50’s. Anyway, hope to hear back from you.
I recently unpacked my Lorrie Deb wedding dress from 1982 and was shocked to see how white and beautiful it was. It’s still in style and for sale on Ebay now!
I am researching May Barlow Cummings for the Lorrie Deb/ Emma Domb entry in the Vintage Fashion Guild Label resource. Would love to hear from Mary or anyone else that knows anything about the designer.
