Here is a little history on the label, courtesy of The Vintage Fashion Guild:

"The Dynasty Salon was located in the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong.

The Dynasty label was established in 1953, when designer Dora Sanders started manufacturing clothing sized and styled for Americans who were traveling in Asia.

By 1959 Dynasty clothing was sold by 600 stores in the US and was the leading fashion exporter in Asia. Sanders cleverly let important US department stores like Neiman Marcus, I. Magnin, and Lord & Taylor have exclusive rights to new styles for six months before the designs were sold directly to customers in Hong Kong.

In 1964, Dynasty hired a new designer, Urleene Chaplain, and she started to use materials other than the fine Asian silks the company had used exclusively up to that point. Italian couturier Patrick de Barentzen joined the Dynasty design team in 1966. During that year the company opened its first retail store in London."
