Carrie Couture By Felix Arbeo..Opp Art Floral Print Gown With Matching Shawl..Red/Black/Green On White Ground..1960's-70's..

This exciting gown by Felix Arbeo for Aventura div. of Carrie Couture would feel at home in an art gallery showing OPP ART paintings. The print is a very well engineered screen print on quality polyester. The fabric resembles tie silk. It has the same twill weave and feel as tie silk. I would guess that this fabric is made of TREVIRA Polyester which was the SNOB polyester at that time. I was the creator of TREVIRA's first Fabric Library at that time. I worked with the quality textile companies. I could even guess the fabric company. It was either SOPTRA Fabrics or KENWOOD. In fact, I have some cotton and TREVIRA jersey from Kenwood in my stash. Email my shop if you are interested in seeing them.

The "A" line gown is completely lined; the skirt lining is free. The shawl is edged with green satin polyester. The gown is in very good vintage condition. The green border on the shawl requires 8" of hand stitching. This gown has not been cleaned.
