Tiered skirt and fitted blouse

The Jennifer Dean label started at Jennifer Godward's kitchen table but it was soon so successful that larger premises on the corner of Victoria and High Streets were secured in 1966. Jennifer recalled that customers wanted the latest styles and colours and her challenge was to interpret the trends into the Jennifer Dean look. She remembers long paisley skirts, smock tops and beads, or bell bottoms worn with sky scraper platform soles.
