One-shouldered draped silk dress

In 1965, Auckland Star newspaper asked the Milne & Choyce designer Bruce Papas to design an exclusive dress for a fashion feature. He made the dress from a silk that he thought was perfect for draping. Ana Nielson often modelled Bruce's designs, including his award-winning garment from 1961, Golden Peacock gown.
