Ethereal Bill Gibb of London documented designer maxi dress dating back to the mid-1970's. His pieces are very collectible and found in museum's around the globe. Bill Gibb, a forgotten fashion hero from the Scottish Highlands, incarnated the romantic essence of British style. While attending the Royal College of Art his fellow fashion students were Ossie Clark and Zandra Rhodes, who shared an unbridled vision.
The design elements on this dress is genius; heavenly white jersey with art deco novelty insect beadwork through the bodice and shoulders. The backless cut with upper tie really brings the whole vibe together. I love the draped goddess caftan silhouette which is so effortless to wear. It's a timeless garment simply because it exudes an undeniably unique flair, and yet remains incredibly current. The pictures say it all.
