Vintage Designer 70s Dress Black Jersey John Kloss Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a black jersey 70s dress designed by American fashion designer John Kloss, winner of the Coty Fashion Award in 1971 and 1974,  Although it is a 70s dress, it is simple and has a timeless, yet modern, look, easy to wear today.  It has a wide and deep V shaped neckline and a panel attached to either side that wrap around the bodice and tie at the back.  The waist is seam defined and the skirt is attached in tucks under the waist seam, which gives the skirt volume so that it falls in drapes to a below the knee length.  It is unlined and does up the back with a nylon zipper.
