1970's A. J. Bari Chocolate Brown Velveteen Maxi Dress With Moire Trim

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Kay Unger lent her ladylike aesthetics to the A.J. Bari label during the 1970's and this lovely little dress is an example of her work. The chocolate brown velveteen is graphically enhanced with a tricolor moire fabric at the waist and near the hem. The mandarin style neckline is enhanced with wooden buttons and the dress zips snugly at the back. The maxi length is a period perfect style which translates well for a modern look by adding lace up boots or heeled oxfords. Excellent vintage condition with light signs of wear to the fabric mostly at the neckline.
