This dress was purchased originally by Carol's mother to wear to her wedding in 1965. Emma Knuckey manufactured her designs for a range of retailers including the prestigious department stores such as Smith & Caughey's but also exclusively for top end boutiques like Iris Currie who had their own labels included in the garment.
