Jay Herbert was not a fashion designer or even an actual person. Jay Herbert of California was a business name of partners Herbert Owen and Joseph Silverstein who engaged in the manufacture and sale of ladies dresses. It appears that Jay Herbert of California began appearing in vintage department store advertisements in the late 50’s but by the mid 60’s they faded away. Decades later, in the 80’s the name Jay Herbert appears again on handbags and wine caddies but now simply as Jay Herbert of New York.
