Button-through dress & hot pants

This two-piece outfit is by Wellington-based label House of Raymonde. Jacob and Rachel Cohen founded Ray Manufacturing in the 1930s, later changing the name to the more elegant House of Raymonde as the business developed a fashion profile. The Cohens' three sons joined the business, working in design, manufacturing, and retail.
