About

Amazing and rare youth quake movement, black jersey mini dress from the cult label Paraphernalia. It is amazing and very bold! The cut of the dress is very simple and represents the time perfectly - a high neck tops a skinny sleeved shift that flares out in a saucy way as it reaches the hem - done deliberately so all the focus is on the legs! Onto the black are silver fabric striped and arrows four bands around one arm and arrows that go across the bust and hips. love how the very upper and very lower band on the arm lines up with the arrows on the chest and hip. It is very, very collectible and a prime example of the period. Excellent condition!

Sleeves: 24"
Shoulders: 15" across
Bust: 18” flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 16.5” flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 32.5" from neck to hem

Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper and hook & eye at the back neck.The arrows and stripes where hand cut, not machine cut, and then applied to the dress. The fabric is a light weight poly jeresy so they have a bit of stretch from the listed measurements. Perhaps the barest of scuffing to the edges of the silver fabric but this is normal aging for this fabric and is very very tiny and should not be considered a flaw
