Chequered tiers dress

Roydon was the in-house label for McKenzies department store. The Roydon brand was named after Roy and Don McKenzie, the sons of the store's founder John McKenzie. Roydon was first trademarked in the mid 1950s. This garment still has its original swing tag. It promotes the 'minimum iron cotton' from which the dress is made. On the inside of the label there are care instructions, endorsed by the Lux Washability Bureau, which instruct the owner to use their product to preserve this quality garment.
