Printed coatdress with domed closure

This Doris de Pont coatdress is made from furnishing fabric. It has domes down the front and back so that it could be worn in many different ways. Doris was always looking for interesting and unique fabrics using unconventional materials and customising existing materials with appliqué, or commissioning painting and printing by local artists. This strategy became a hall mark of her design practice.
