Stunning Vintage Diane Freis Dress 1980s - Size Small-Medium Diane Freis - Size: M - Multi-coloured - Full length dress

£100.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This gorgeous vintage dress by designer Diane Freis features her signature vibrant prints and exotic influences. Freis gained a reputation for her outlandish yet wearable designs in this style throughout the 1980's, and only 10 of each design were sold worldwide. A highly-collectable piece, this dress is also very wearable- with an elasticated smocked waistband and voluminous skirt the dress was produced in one ‘free size’ only, as were Freis’ other designs.

The gorgette fabric gives this dress a lovely drape and the full sleeves add volume; the skirt features similar pleats. Typically eclectic in pattern, featured triangular panel at the front and keyhole rear with tassel detail. As expected with any vintage piece, there are some very minor pulls to fabric which can easily be neatened up.

A fabulous creation, this dress will make an entrance at any garden party or wedding! A valuable piece to add to any vintage enthusiast’s wardrobe.

Bust: up to 37”
Waist: up to 32”

Oxfam Shop Magdalen Street

Norwich Oxfam is exceptionally large for an Oxfam Shop and we sell a large array of furniture and homeware as well as all the usual goods that you would associate with Oxfam shops. We are situated on Magdalen Street, a bustling thoroughfare near to the Cathedral at the heart of a vibrant community and close to the centre of the East Anglian City of Norwich. It is easy to get to, as many of the bus routes (including Park & Ride) go past the shop. There are at least three large car parks and a local shopping centre within walking distance.
