About

Gorgeous early "Thea Porter" designer princess coat fashioned in the softest, print sapphire-blue velvet. I love embroidered soutache trimming down the sleeves and front bodice. The nipped-waist silhouette is so flattering! Thea Porter was largely inspired by fashion from the Victorian and Renaissance eras. This is easily identifiable by her use of luxurious fabrics and layered construction. During the early 1970's, her clothing attracted many celebrity customers who enjoyed wearing her erotic, yet comfortable, creations whose secret was to conceal rather than reveal. She admits her fashions were created in that particular style as she had “…always felt very envious of Arab women because they can hide behind their clothes, it is a very protected and secure way to feel.“ Admitting that some of her creations were far removed from anything an Arab woman would wear she said that she felt “It’s important that the end result should be my own romantic fantasies.” This garment is truly breathtaking and very rare.
