This gorgeous vintage dress by Marion Donaldson of Glasgow is just PERFECT for someone who loves boho style and summery dresses!
The body of the dress is made of a lightweight, white fabric with a paisley style pattern in blue and black. It has a round, slightly scooped neckline, a rear concealed zip and a flattering empire line emphasised by a black velvet strip and bow.
The Marion Donaldson brand has been credited with bringing ‘Swinging London’ to Glasgow, and she herself is sometimes referred to as ‘the Scottish Barbara Hulanicki’(Biba).
This dress has a couple of issues: it does have very faint/small marks on the bodice, near the neckline, these have proved to be too faint to show on a photo but are nonetheless there. The lower part of the dress has a small line of a possible snag or pull- not very apparent but on the front just above the pattern and also the skirt has a small area which may have been burnt- melted appearance, maybe a cigarette, this is on the lower patterned area so not at all apparent. Hence the price for this very pretty designer dress.
No fabric or size label. But probably polyester.
