1970s One Shoulder Donald Brooks Dress

I love Donald Brooks pieces and I love this fantastic one shoulder maxi dress from the seventies in its fantastic combination of white, navy and a brilliant green. Made of a slinky, fluid jersey it cascades form the one shoulder in a myriad of stripes and fabulousness. The stripes take a bot of an angular turn as the cross over the bust and each panel widens as it nears the floor. Its supermodel length and there is an astonishing amount of fabric in the body and skirt. The fabric is light weight enough that it falls perfectly when you are standing still and does not seem bulky, but the second you move (or twirl across a dance floor) the amount of fabric becomes apparent, Stunning and flattering - those stripes will make you look a mile long! Excellent condition
