Printed chiffon layered dress

Jane Bezar made this dress for artist Anneke Borren in the early 1970s. She more it with a necklace of Italian and African glass trade beads that sat just above the breastline.

Anneke wore the dress right through the 1980s and 1990s. "It floated, I floated in it, and it was cool and sophisticated at the same time"
