A gorgeous 1975 Jean Muir designer rayon jersey maxi dress in the prettiest forest-green color. The self-taught Muir made her name in the 1960's, creating a reputation for exquisitely tailored, timeless, feminine clothing. Muir is 'designer’s designer’, admired by the likes of Gaultier, Issey Miyake and Giorgio Armani. She continually held the attention and respect of fashion critics, and worked with some of the world’s most established photographers. A 1975 survey reported the two most copied designers in the world to be Jean Muir and Yves Saint Laurent. This breathtaking Jean Muir creation is everything a woman wants. The body is cut long and lean with vertical seaming. Each seam is done with her signature top stitching in a matching green thread. The deco-style buckles that flow into a winged backside add a perfect amount of drama to the dress. The bodice definitely has a 1930's vibe with the puff-shoulder scarf tie and lean, long sleeves. The drop-waist with fuller skirting creates the most flattering silhouette. A rare and important piece of wearable fashion history.
