Vintage Quorum Caftan-style Lace Wedding Dress, UK8

Regular price £450.00 Sale

An incredible vintage lace caftan-style dress by Quorum, thought to be designed by Alice Pollock in 1964.  It is made of ecru tapestry lace over a lining of rust coloured silk.  It is straight, slim fitting and has a plain round neck with long zip fastening at the back, and beautiful flared sleeves which are unlined.

Quorum was one of the great London boutiques of the 1960s. It was founded by Alice Pollock in 1964. She was joined by husband and wife Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell in late 1965. The clothes at Quorum were designed by Pollock and Clark, and they were often made from fabrics designed by Birtwell.

Quorum was known for their huge production fashion shows, which attracted the brightest stars of London – the Beatles, and friend David Hockney among them. The clothes were sensual and the feel was Bohemian.
