1970s John Charles Cotton Floral Folkloric Maxi Dress


The maxi length dress became popular in fashion in the late 1960's. One inspiration for the style was the costumes from the film Dr. Zhivago. It was especially popular in London. John Charles was one of the designers who popularized the maxi along with other notable designers Biba, YSL, and Dior. Folkloric styling and floral prints were a popular theme.
