Leather jacket & skirt with screen-printed dots

Brigid Brock began designing leatherwear under her own name for Marcol Manufacturing in Christchurch in 1982. Her approach, typified by fitted skirts, broad-shouldered jackets, matador pants, boleros and backless vests, was very modernistic and European. Screen-printed leathers were part of her signature look. Trudi Stewart-Haverkort bought this jacket in Christchurch - the delay due to the purchase caused her family to miss a flight to the United States.
