    This is an amazing and rare Thea Porter dress!

    Exceptionally rare made-to-order Thea Porter maxi dress/Kaftan of turquoise fine cotton embroidered with gold silken chainstitch embellishment. Bodice panel constructed of antique metallic gold ribbon. Fully lined with turquoise fine silk. Dress dates from 1969-1971 and is a variation on the famous "Faye dress", named after actress Faye Dunaway who bought several of the same dress in various fabrics and design variations. Generous sweeping hemline and angel sleeves make this design flattering to all figure types. A rare and important piece of high end 1960s fashion history.

    The dress is in great condition, it has a couple of small marks to the left sleeve ( see photos ) and the belt has been altered in the addition of velcro carefully hand tacked by the previous owner ( see photos ) This could be carefully removed or worn as is as it has its original loop so a button could easily be added. The gold silken over the turquoise gives a sheen which catches the light beautifully when worn.

    Perfect and rare example for any collection!
