An exquisite example of John Bates’s softer more feminine evening wear, likely launched in the mid 1970s. It is beautifully fitted to frame through the body, with incredibly stretchy and oh so forgiving fabric. The dress then tapers out to a wonderfully full, long-length, ankle skimming skirt. A simple yet beautiful design, with the hidden wow factor as you walk away through a crowd of admiring on-lookers, the scooped plunging back line is striking and completes the arresting beauty of this impressive dress. Perfect for evening or daywear, in fact all day, every day wear!
