BIBA

An exceptionally pretty midnight blue  ceil floral bud printed midi dress by legendary boutique Biba. This gorgeous dress dates from around 1974 and it bears the printed satin label used when they moved to 'Big Biba'.  The print is adorable and incredibly feminine, the cut and style very reminiscent to similar 40s style Bus Stop designs I have seen. The fabric is fluid and plentiful which gives the dress a wonderful 'swing' and 'swish-i-ness'.  Glorious banded flutter sleeves, collared deep-plunge neck-line, large resin buttons and beautifully hidden pockets to a full slippy skirt are glorious finishing touches to an already beautiful dress.

(Our beautiful model is a UK size 8-10. Bust: 31.5, Waist: 24", Hips: 34.5").  The top was not pinned for photography purposes.

A Truly Rare Vintage find by Miss Booty Barefoot.

Professionally Vintage Dry-cleaned & Ready to Wear.
