About

Patrick Kelly late 1970s white ribbed cotton dress with gloves size 4. This piece is from the collection of Carol Martin who was a long time friend & model in the 70s & 80s. Carol Martin said the dress was given to her by Patrick Kelly to use in a photo shoot testing back in the late 70s. It was not uncommon for Patrick Kelly to give his models / friends samples of his designs which he would pull from the corner of a room with remnants of fabrics mixed in with his design. Carol also said that it was not uncommon for her to wear one of his designs out at night and have numerous people ask her about it. This was one of the ways Patrick Kelly would promote his designs by having his models / friends wearing them out at the clubs. When The Philadelphia Museum of Art had a "Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love" exhibition last year there was a yellow dress of this design from his 1988 collection on exhibition. This white dress was a prototype of what was to become in 1988. Because this was from the late 70s there is no label.
Glove size: 7.5
Measurements are:
24" - 28" bust
21" - 25" waist
33" dress height
