This is a wonderful vintage 60s era LBD (little black dress) designed by "Angela at London Town". The dress is made in a simple, yet sophisticated, mini dress style, suitable for a cocktail party. It has a rounded neckline decorated with V shaped appliques in either black patent leather or vinyl. There are also three silver toned metal buttons at the upper center front. The dress has a dropped waist with a wide pleated panel at the front and back of the skirt. There are loops for a belt - the original belt isn't present and I substituted a black velvet belt in the photos. You are welcome to the black velvet belt shown, but a black patent or vinyl belt in a narrow width would be more suitable. The cuffs of the sleeves are also decorated with a shiny black panel.
Age: 1960s, circa mid 60s
Label: Angela at London Town. London Town was located in Mayfair, an area of London known for quality tailoring. They produced quality garments, highly structured and aimed at a more mature market. Angela at London Town was established in late 1963 and featured the designs of Angela Cash, daughter of the owners of London Town, Hyman and Cecilia Cash. Angela's designs were aimed at a younger market and her first design was an instant success at Gimbel-Saks in New York, which led to her being invited to the US and launching the label "Angela at London Town".
