Strapless black swimsuit with cutouts

The Jennifer Dean label was started in 1960 by Jennifer Godward. She started the label at her kitchen table but before long she had her own shop in Vulcan Lane, Auckland.

The prestige of the brand, and its marketing which used New Zealand supermodels Rachel Hunter and Lorraine Downes, meant that it survived the deregulation of the economy in 1984 and the 1987 stockmarket crash.
