1970s Richilene Silk Plaid Dress

About

This dress dates to that great period of fashion around the late 1960s into the early 1970s. The world was taken with the youthful spirit of the generation and colours were fun and patterns bold. Here in this dress the reserved house of Richilene found it's spirit, known for dressing ladies who demanded the finest in construction. The dress appears effortless, a bow and some pleats suspended by spagetti straps. The internal construction of the bodice as well as the expert draping of the bow, bound button holes, and sharply folded pleats speak of a much more sophisticated construction. In near mint condition this dress does have a spot here and there however internally it is clean and appears to have had very little wear.
