Evening dress in fine polka dot

This evening dress was made by Fascinator Frocks in 1950. The business was owned by Maud Barrell who bought it in the early 1940s. Fascinator Frocks occupied the entire first floor of the building at 19 Cook Street in Auckland. There was a bright, luxurious showroom and a large workroom. The office and staff lunchroom was a pleasant and sunny space with big north-facing windows.
