|Peach Lurex Vintage Mini Dress|
This little dress has a simple A-line shape with artful gathers at the bust to create a curvy shape. The fabric is a sparkly silver lurex on a peach poly knit. It very likely was a long maxi dress that has been cut shorter. Definitely not a typical design from Van Raalte.
Fernando created "At Home Wear" with an emphasis on lounging pieces for easy glam at home and was an initiator of the concept of lingerie being worn as outerwear. He must have designed a line of lounging pieces for Van Raalte but I can find no specific information or advertising of these.
