Silk wrap dress

This dress has two labels – the designer Colin Cole's label and also the fabric label 'Tissu, Chatillon Mouly Roussel, Paris'. Garments often came with a fabric label to demonstrate the quality of the fabric. This dress was made in the Summer 85/86 collection. It was produced in fine French wool for the Winter 1986 collection.
