This salmon pink dress is vintage hipster with its dropped waist and accordian pleats. It has a 1920s style with the silhouette. The label is A Yardley Fashion. It is machine washable. Twiggy wore one of Gibbs dresses to her premiere which heightened the popularity of his label. He became perhaps most famous for his extraordinary knitwear designs, undeniably inspired by his Scottish origins. Initially hand machined by Mildred Boulton, who worked from Gibb’s designs and Kaffe Fassett’s swatches, they later found a manufacturer (Harry Green of Gould’s in Leicester) who was prepared to take on the very complex designs on a larger scale. Boulton did carry on handknitting smaller-scale designs for Gibb’s label. The knitwear was one of his most successful ventures, creating countless fans of the beautifully subtle palette and extraordinary mixes of colours.

Gibb was certainly a true artist and the extraordinary creations were amongst the nearest a British designer got to haute couture.
