A breathtaking Thea Porter Couture dress ensemble that is unlike any I've ever seen! This extraordinary garment is fashioned in luxurious turquoise metallic lame and embroidered silk-chiffon. I adore the low-cut sweetheart plunge, fully boned, gypsy flutter-sleeve bodice. The flattering nipped waist, complete with sash-tie, flows into the most beautiful free-flowing flounced skirt. The matching bolero jacket adds another lavish element to this masterpiece. During the early 1970's, Thea Porter attracted many celebrity customers who enjoyed wearing her erotic, yet comfortable, creations. 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." Here is a rare opportunity to own a piece of designer history that could easily be apart of any major museum exhibit!
