Ruched Party Dress with Green Feathers, 1980s
A stunning vintage party dress from the 80s by legendary cult designer Jane Kahn for her avant garde label, Kahniverous. Jane Kahn was famous in Britain for working with Pattie Bell for the Kahn & Bell line, creating high fashion punk clothing and dressing the likes of Boy George and Duran Duran. Her own label was just as edgy and boundary pushing, as can be seen in this beautiful cocktail / mini evening dress. Made of stretchy black ruched fabric which is flattering and easy to wear, with a chiffon halterneck and a bust trimmed with iridescent green and black coque feathers creating a vampy gothic look.
