White evening dress with fabric flowers

After Trilby Yates' early death, her sister Julia continued to run and expand their business widening their offering to include womenswear. Trilby's daughter Digsy, who Julia had adopted, joined the Trilby Yates workroom when she was old enough. She progressed through the ranks to become a cutter/designer. In the early 1950s when Digsy decided to leave to get married, Julia made the decision to retire and close the business.
