1970s Norman Norell Camel Stand Collar Wool Day Dress, W28"

1970s Norman Norell Camel Stand Collar Wool Day Dress, W28"

Mary Tyler Moore would have loved this classy number! Early 1970s minimalist - just throw on a silk scarf and you are ready for the newsroom, or anywhere else a serious working gal might turn up. 

Norman Norell was one of the first American designers to have his own label - he started out dressing silent film stars and went on to develop a name for well-constructed, deceptively simple but striking fashions. He was particularly known for his necklines, and this dress is a great example, with a high wide band collar, set-in bishop's sleeve, patch pockets, cover buttons, and a matching, attached covered belt.

LABEL: Norman Norell New York. Mabel Danahy Buffalo.
