Gold brocade dress

Jane Fawcett describes this Emma Knuckey dress as "a lucky find" from the Alexandra Park Vintage Fashion Fair in 2013. "The fabulous fabric, black with gold paisley brocade, caught my eye. The people selling it had been running a costume hire business. It's in excellent condition." She has worn the dress to a vintage/retro fashion evening where she received lots of lovely comments "Everyone wanted to touch the fabric."
