With a mention in our New Zealand Fashion Museum along with a number of other designer boutique stores in the 1960's, this gorgeous silk dress is both of historical significance and a truly gorgeous piece to wear.
Take it to the theatre, as a stunning event piece or stage presence - this hostess style beauty is a statement. The purple and fuchsia silk create a feminine and royal impact.
Tighter through the shoulders and bust, this design hides a multitude of sins! A strong pleat from the buttons to the floor creates a flattering line. Pair with metallic strappy sandals or heels and the elegance of this garment will be honoured.
