White lace wedding trousers & top

Vinka Lucas' Maree de Maru salon quickly became a cynosure of attention in the 1960s. Focusing on evening and bridal wear, it somehow combined basically efficient design with a generous modicum of theatricality, which was somewhat less sedate than the 'look' to which Auckland had been accustomed.
