Jade houndstooth ensemble
Bruce Papas designed this ensemble for a client, Mavis Jaggar-Smith. It was originally a three-piece but the jacket is missing. Bruce designed a seasonal wardrobe for Mavis for more than 30 years. He drew up sketches of her ideas and helped her to select the right fabrics. This ensemble is typical of her style - "slim, elegant lines for day and all out glamour for evening" (Fashion Quarterly, Autumn 1987).
