Vintage 70s Jean Varon Dress // 1970s Tent Style Made in England Design Ladies Size L 12 Large
Label: Jean Varon Made in England. John Bates, an English designer, adopted the design name Jean Varon in 1959. He is known for being an innovative designer at the vanguard of British mod design during the 60s. He is known for his modernistic designs, short hemlines (he was credited by British Vogue as being the originator of the mini-skirt, rather than Mary Quant or Andre Courreges) and his use of futuristic materials such as plastics and mesh. He also designed wardrobe for Emma Peel of the television series "The Avengers" in 1965.
Description: This is a wonderful vintage dress made in a square cut, sleeveless long tent style. The dress has a high neckline and is constructed with a printed panel on the front and back over a slip base dress. The print features two different zigzag line motifs arranged within rectangular panels in white against a navy blue background. The neckline is decorated with a ribbon and bows at either shoulder.
Color: White and blue
Material: 61% Viscose, 25% Acetate and 14% Nylon; lining is 100% Polyester
