This dress was a gift from the designer. The mannequin was dressed with all correct accessories to show how it would have looked for the designer's 1965 collection. The stockings are of the same material as the dress. The dress and stockings would have retailed together for about $85. The black heeled Capezio shoes are original to the outfit. Exhibited in Suiting Everyone: The Democratization of Clothing in America from 1974 to 1979.
