Ensemble

The White House

1969-1970

This is a beautifully tailored, eye-catching child’s ensemble made from high-quality English wool in electrifying colors. It has been documented that the ensemble was purchased on New Bond St. in London, a street where luxury goods are sold. The style of the dress marks the end of formal dressing, for children weren’t as commonly dressed in this manner in the 1970s.
