Gottex black and white jersey wrap dress 1980s


Gottex black and white jersey wrap dress from the 1980s. I love this graphic print that has an Art Deco vibe. A wrap front dress with long, fitted at the wrist sleeves, a narrow narrow shawl collar and long wrap ties at the waist, the skirt is long bias cut panels. Unlined. It is marked size medium. Gottex was founded in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1956 by Lea Gottlieb. She adapted her expertise as a raincoat manufacturer to create a pioneering swimsuit company. She sold her wedding ring for capital, bought fabric, borrowed a sewing machine and began to design swimsuits that were unique to Israel, inspired by the local Middle-Eastern light and colors: "the aqua of the Mediterranean, the golden yellow of the desert, the blue of Lake Tiberias, the pink of Jerusalem stone and the greens of the Galilee. She headed the design team until 1998. In Gottlieb's vision, Gottex collections can be worn "from pool to the bar," In 1975, she was contacted by the fashion houses of Yves St. Laurent and Pierre Cardin, which sought to manufacture her swimsuits under their names. Measurements are in inches Waist 28-32 Bust 34-38 Hip 34-38 Center neck back to waist back 18 1/2 Waist to hem back 34
