These muted and dove grey looks may be quiet in colour but their styles speak volumes. The centre gown is by Mr. Blackwell (August 29, 1922 – October 19, 2008), an American designer who started his career in the late 1950’s. You may better know him as the hilarious creator of the “Ten Worst-Dressed Women” list. Wonder what he would have to say about this display?

C~Mr. Blackwell 1970’s gown with ostrich trim, size 4-6 sold.
