Tweed ensemble with fringed rever

Joan Talbot, owner of the Vulcan Lane boutique Tarantella, was a favourite with the New Zealand Wool Board. This ensemble won a Wool Board Award in 1964. A journalist wrote profusely about her favourite outfit: "Of all Joan Talbot’s inspirations I most admired a grey, black and white tweed closing up with enormous black buttons to a huge right-pointing fringed rever. Worn open this reveals a striking black jersey top worn with a tweed skirt." The ensemble is modelled by Anne McClurg.
