1970s Ronald Amey Purple Abstract Pattern Dress

About

What a piece of work! This dress has an fantastic mix of matching printed fabrics and colors! The bodice is a printed wool blend with purple abstract geometric shapes and flower patterns on a simple "neutral" tan background. The same color way and pattern is on the velvet skirt of the dress. The lay of velvet creates a sheen when lit, creating a much lighter purple color. This added color creates a total calm in the mix of pattern and fabric. Again, what a piece! Lime green wool bands are located at the neck, waist and cuff bound with red silk satin on both edges. Bell sleeves are folded at cuff and punctuated with a round gold floral designed working button, noted with a single emerald crystal. Wonderfully creative and complex. Mr. Amey was known for his original use of fabrics during the 60’s. The skirt has an inverted box pleat at the center back zipper and also strategic gathering along waist line for fit and design detail. He was also known to work on his fabrics with famous textile designer, Tzaims Luksus. This has the mark of a Luksus/Amey collaboration all over it. Beautiful fit! Fits a modern size 2.
