Gold & white gown with gauntlets
This dress and gauntlets were made by Bruce Papas for Meegan Pollock to wear to the Auckland Racing Club Ball in about 1986. The dress and gauntlets are made from guipure lace overlayed over gold tissue lame. The guipure lace, from Jakob Schlaepfer, was only 40 cm wide so required careful design to create a dress with that narrow width. The same fabric has been used for the bustier that is part of the white and gold leather suit.
