Paraphernalia Vintage Youthquake Black Open Knit Bell Sleeve Ruffle Mini Dress
Incredible vintage late 1960s/early70s dress from famed label Paraphernalia, an innovative, iconic boutique of the era. It's unclear which talented up-and-comer designed this piece (Betsey Johnson, Deanna Littell, Joel Schumacher, or Diana Dew, to name a few), but the quintessential youthquake essence of the boutique is absolutely within this design. Mesmerizing and interesting knit mini dress that is open/see-through, in black. Flared, flouncy skirt bottom that has amazing movement. Bell shaped sleeves that are cuffed in ruffles. Ruffle collar. Zip up front, trimmed in braided details with tassel puller. As cute as it is rare.
