There's no label to be found and this dress has the hallmarks of being handmade.
The fabric is a polyester mix in dark purple with a busy, bright floral print in red, yellow, gold, green and white. Round necked, there are dark orange plastic buttons decorating the front placket which runs the length of the dress and it fastens with the original metal zipper. Short sleeved, the dress has tailored darts to the front bust, sides, shoulders and the back. The tailoring detail shows a level of expertise in the making and the full shape hangs nicely, even on my mannequin which is several sizes smaller than the dress.
