1970's Thea Porter Couture Pink Art-Nouveau Silk Billow-Sleeve Gypsy Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking Thea Porter Couture dress straight from one of her original model's collection! This extraordinary garment is fashioned in luxurious rose-pink print art-nouveau woven silk with beautiful velvet piping. I love the low-cut plunge shelf-bust gypsy neckline in rich maroon velvet and the steel-grey chiffon billow-sleeves. The flattering nipped-waist free flowing skirt is perfect for any modern event. During the early 1970's, Thea Porter attracted many celebrity customers who enjoyed wearing her erotic, yet comfortable, creations. 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." Here is a rare opportunity to own a piece of designer history that could easily be apart of any major museum exhibit!
