Wool crepe dress with roulé shoulder straps

Barbara Herrick of Babs Radon made this dress to wear at Kirkcaldie & Stains' 100th anniversary party in Wellington. It was a very grand affair where they turned back the clock in the store and all the staff wore costumes of that time. "Kirkaldies & Stains was a real leader and it was a pleasure to be part of it – having my own corner to fill."
