About

Valerie Porr designed a line of bohemian clothing during the 1970s and early '80s for her boutique in Soho and high-end retailers. Wrap tops were her tour de force, and she excelled at her choice of fabrics, many of them imported from France. This wrap top is typical of her work. Fashioned of a sheer silk chiffon in watercolor blues and turquoise, it features a deep ruffled collar/capelet and gathered balloon sleeves with deep cuff. Approximate size 4.
