A striking and original 1970s kaftan or trapeze style dress. It has a brightly coloured floral Paisley pattern in red, orange, green and white tones against a black background. The fabric composition is not known but it feels like a good quality medium weight acrylic jersey. It has a high neckline with a keyhole opening and empire bust-line and a series of vertical panels to ensure a fabulous draped effect. The tie element of the dress acts to cinch it in at the waist as required. This feature is unusually located on the inside of the dress and pulls through from the armlet holes as an extension of the empire line before flowing into the trapeze or kaftan style. It is in really excellent vintage condition - the colours are very fresh and bright and it has no faults of any note. Perfect as resort wear or evening attire. Due to the style of the dress it will fit a range of sizes up to around a UK 10, US 6. Unlabelled but of good manufactured quality and likely to have retailed in a boutique of the era.
