About

A fearless designer, Rudi Gernreich’s body conscious garments dazzled the fashion world with originality and vision. Gernreich held a futurist view of fashion that resulted in innovations such as using plastic in clothes and removing inner construction. This stunning lime-green wool mod shift dress is a perfect example of his genius. The garment's simple unstructured silhouette is so classic yet the unique scalloped cut-out cage bodice is a treasure trove of mod fashion. Just look at the clever way it links by a lattice of looped knitted knots! This rare garment is iconic, comfortable and a fierce fashion statement.
