John Bates for Jean Varon

Rare early piece by John Bates for Jean Varon. Incredibly similar in style to the empire line gowns he designed for Emma Peel in The Avengers, the neckline is completely smothered in gorgeous pink ostrich feathers. The dress itself is simple, a sugar pink matte shantung-type fabric and trimmed with a matching pink ribbon under the bust.

Measurements:

Bust 36" - Waist 27" - Hips 38" - Length 54"

Fabric:

Feels like a shantung silk but there is no content label so I can't be sure.

Flaws:

There are some faint marks scattered around the dress, shown as best I can below, and some grubbiness around the hem. Due to the delicate nature of the fabric and the feathers, I haven't attempted to clean it myself and consequently I have taken this into account with the pricing. To be honest with you, the marks wouldn't bother me at all and wouldn't be noticeable in an evening light anyway. Sold as vintage.
