Wool crepe women’s tuxedo

Ches Pritchard made this tuxedo for Cecilie Geary to wear to Fashion Quarterly’s 15th birthday celebration at the Auckland City Art Gallery in 1995. The tuxedo was a key evening look that year, worn with red lips and nails, black courts with high heels and, if you owned a pair, diamond earrings.
