Fitted sheath dress with blouson cape

Meegan Pollock, owner of Centrepoint fabrics always had access to unique high quality cloth. She would often bring Bruce Papas a piece of fabric and tell him the event it was to be worn at. After holding the fabric aloft, turning it this way and that to examine its drape, he would immediately pick up a pencil and start sketching. Read more about Bruce Papas in the New Zealand Fashion Museum publication, A Certain Style.
