Size: medium

Condition: Excellent

Gorgeous Thea Porter dress fashioned in navy and pink polka-dot print cotton voile. I love the beautiful color combination and clear nod to 1930's fashion. The silhouette is a flattering nipped waist tea-length with a flowing swing-skirt. I adore the ruffle-collar and lean, long sleeves. During the early 1970's, Thea Porter clothing attracted many celebrity customers who enjoyed wearing her erotic, yet comfortable, creations whose secret was to conceal rather than reveal. She admits her fashions were created in that particular style as she had "…always felt very envious of Arab women because they can hide behind their clothes, it is a very protected and secure way to feel." Admitting that some of her creations were far removed from anything an Arab woman would wear she said that she felt "It’s important that the end result should be my own romantic fantasies." This garment is truly breathtaking and very rare!
