1970's Jean Varon Green Graphic Floral Print Pleated Tiered Halter Dress
Gorgeous graphic green print dress, dating back to the early 1970's, by the famous Jean Varon label. John Bates started the Jean Varon label in 1960 and is possibly one of the greatest forgotten talents of the 1960's and 1970's. With no formal training, he took an apprenticeship at London couturier Herbert Sidon in the late 1950's. John explains, “I called it Jean Varon because at the time an English name like John Bates meant nothing; you had to appear to be French." This eye-catching garment is constructed with layers of cascading nylon fabric which feels wonderful again the skin. Just look at the unique graphic green floral print trimming in checkered ribbon. I love the flirty thin-strap halter bodice. The skirt is a pleated tiered a-line so you get a fantastic amount of movement! This is that statement dress every fashionista looks for.
