Gorgeous mid-1970's Thea Porter designer couture dress fashioned in magical black and white kaleidoscope floral cotton print. I love the dramatic bell-sleeves and bold block coloring. The silhouette is a flattering nipped-waist full length design. Thea Porter was largely inspired by fashion from the Victorian and Renaissance eras. This is easily identifiable by intricately decorated and unique patterns. During the early 1970's, her 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 "has always felt very envious of Arab women because they can hide behind their clothes, it is a very protected and secure way to feel." This dress is truly exquisite and we took many pictures so you can see why.
