1970s Rare Scott Barrie Jersey Dress

Scott Barrie is renowned for designing sexy, sometimes outrageous clothing and was particularly adept in the use of silk chiffon and silk jersey. This is exactly what I am talking about - it is made of a slinky brown silk jersey and drapes and moves beautifully. His models were known not to walk down the catwalk but to strut and dance and boogie, infusing each piece with pure joy and the sense of being alive. His dresses often had wrapped bits or ties like this as well - this one has super long wide jersey ties in the same fabric that fall from each shoulder and can be crossed over the bust as I have done and then wrapped around the waist one or several times depending on the look you are after. The color is very flattering on a wide range of skin tones and his piece are rapidly becoming highly collectible. Barrie was a great, but sometime overlooked American designer. Mint condition.
