This beautiful lightweight soft silk dress is an example of a high end day dress from 1947/48.
This dress is made by Koupy, a member of the model house group. It bears a ‘dinner plate’ or ‘double eleven’ utility label which was introduced at the end of WWII, to denote highest price non utility items. It would have cost a weeks wages to purchase in a high end department store, like Harvey Nichols.
The garment is pictured for reference only & not for sale. It has kindly been loaned by Liz Tregenza.
