1966 Documented Leo Narducci Ad Campaign Dress

Leo Narducci won the Coty Fashion Award for Young Designers in 1965 and it is a bit of a shame that he is an oft overlooked designer. His work really was wonderful and he focused on the fabric. Here we have the dress that was used in the national campaign for the brand. You can see that it was photoed on Super Model Marissa Berenson. The textile design was done by Ed Diamond, who Narducci worked with often, telling him his vision and then Mr. Diamond would create a fabric for it. I love the bold graphic feel of the piece with its stark black and white striping on silk mixed with those incredible dots.The cut os a long slim sheath. The neck is high and it has attached ties that you can wrap and style or simply leave to trail down the front or back. The sleeves are cuffed at the wrist with slight volume above. I love it and its a treat to have such a well documented piece - designer, date, textile and the campaign & model information!

Fully lined in a white silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each cuff has a fabric covered button to close. The ties at the neck are attached.
