Skirt & top with exaggerated puff sleeves

Maurice Mihotich started the Miss Deb label in 1963. By the 1980s Maurice was designing under two labels to cater for the diversity of his clientele. His second label, Cinnamon, was introduced to cater for the trendy, younger market. Miss Deb catered for a more sophisticated style and his co-ordinates, dresses, coats and cocktail-wear found favour with professional women.
