Beautiful textile art and circa late 60s early 70s graphic design.

Early 1970s South Africa was a global shopping phenomenon with designer boutiques and names such as Chanel and Hermes. Pre-Apartheid opposition (which eventually led to the destruction of the "elite" shopping central) the artist/designer, Nanci, had a small boutique where she sold her paintings and her screen printed designs. Her work was heavily influenced by the tribal black Africans. She moved to TX in the 70s and kept two of her designs. I purchased them from her daughter as she was liquidating the estate.This is the first of two. Each one of a kind.

Never worn, only displayed, the long tapering "angel" sleeves and the maxi dress gently tapers outward to the hem. Gorgeous original graphic design in purple and ochre on both the front and the back and the yoke and sleeves. There is a loop at the collar but it is apparent a button was never added.

Measures just barely to 18 inches across the chest from underarm to under arm (and this its measuring outside of the frock from seam to seam) which means a 34 bust max to fit. Smaller even better to allow a little more roominess. From shoulder to hem, the dress is about 55 inches long.

A few very pale spots that were too pale to capture, the dress has never been laundered. Likely age/storage spots. You cannot easily notice them but I would recommend a cleaning prior to wear.

Please drop me a note if any questions.
