About

An exceptional and rare Thea Porter Couture evening caftan from the 1970s. The caftan features a beautiful Indian silk brocade fabric, three-dimensional lace, gold-tone 100% silk and a splendid art deco pattern printed on silk chiffon.

Thea Porter was largely inspired by antique caftans, as well as fashion from the Victorian and Renaissance eras, and her creations are easily identifiable by intricately decorated, hand painted, and layered fabric. Her clothing attracted many celebrity customers such as Elizabeth Taylor who enjoyed wearing her erotic, yet comfortable, creations whose secret was to conceal rather than reveal.
