Bruce Papas designed under two labels when he had a salon at 246 Shopping Centre - Bruce Papas Model and Staevros Boutique. The cutwork appliqué on the collar of this ensemble echoes his work, 20 years earlier, with Ninette Gowns. Read more about Bruce Papas in the New Zealand Fashion Museum publication, A Certain Style.

The neckline stands a little away from the neck so that it frames the face with its decorated collar.
