More Dresses

While I try and come up with the next in-depth topic on Travilla, thought I would present a few additions to my ever-growing collection. I have purchased a mannequin, but not all dresses fit her, so using the images from where I obtained the item.

Very few photos of Travilla's late 1970s-1980s work, but this was one of the few and too distinct not to remember.

Late 1960s. One piece. Not a skirt, but pants. the amount of fabric in them is obscene. You'd think the mix of patterns would not work, but in person, it does.

Sweet little 1960s jacket with layered collar and interest cuff treatment - edited here due to modesty for the mannequin.

Diahann Carrroll in Julia and Sharon Tate for VOD fashion line.

A blue sleeveless and more formal "curly-hem" dresses. Late 1960s. Travilla first introduced the concept in 1965, but it didn't catch on. Three years later, would reintroduce the idea, using his film and television connections to promote them.

Same material as the dresses above but with a simpler hem and collar with sating trim, this is from his Valley of the Dolls fashion line.

Three of the dresses from Julien's. Early 1960s. Leather buttons on the far left. Simplicity in the center made of faille and an interesting blouse treatment on the far right.

Center dress a variation on one in sketch and photo. Not exactly sure what the button hole in center of "x" is for.

Harvest gold houndstooth patterned wool dress far left. Crepe dress in primrose yellow with sailor collar and sild with ecru and yellow dots. All 1960s.

Short-sleeve day dress of silk bodice and wool skirt with diagonal stripes. Matching three-quarter sleeve jacket in matching wool. Need to re-create the neck and head wear for full effect.

These two weren't sold, so I hope to add them to my collection. Also 1960s, a silk sleeveless dress with primrose yellow floral lace overlay and matching jacket on left with a plaid skirt suit with double-breasted cropped jacket and high-waisted skirt.
