An incredibly elegant vintage dress from the 1970's by genius and increasingly collectible vintage designer, Jean Varon (Who was also known as John Bates). In a shimmering gold lamé fabric with a brocade pattern throughout, this dress really epitomises the rich bohemian aesthetic that Varon was best known for.
