1970's Bill Gibb White Eyelet Cotton & Jersey Low Plunge Maxi Wrap Dress
Ethereal Bill Gibb of London documented designer maxi dress dating back to his 1977 spring-summer collection. His pieces are very collectible and found in museum's around the globe. Bill Gibb, a forgotten fashion hero from the Scottish Highlands, incarnated the romantic essence of British style. While attending the Royal College of Art his fellow fashion students were Ossie Clark and Zandra Rhodes, who shared an unbridled vision. The mixture of textiles on this dress is genius; heavenly white embroidered eyelet cotton mixed with lace trimmed jersey. I love the seductive low plunging cut-out bodice. A black jersey cummerbund wrap style waist is so flattering to the figure. Just look are the colorful ribbon work which brings the whole look together. It's a timeless garment simply because it exudes an undeniably unique flair, and yet remains incredibly current.
