Yellow Thai silk evening gown & jacket
Tarantella was located in the Giffords Building on Vulcan Lane. The shop was on the ground floor next to John Greer shoes. There were salons on the 2nd floor and 3rd floors - decorated in pink with plush chairs. This evening gown and jacket was designed by Tarantella designer Joan Talbot in the early 1970s, not long before she closed her shop in 1974.
