Simonetta ~~ Fashion Icon

A beautiful 1970's design from Simonetta, Vogue Couturier Design for an A-line dress with lovely details ~~ a slightly standing neck and front band with concealed zipper closing and center front slit. The daughter of a Roman Duke, Simonetta was the best known of Italian postwar fashion designers. An aristocrat, Simonetta had been interned by the Mussolini government for antifascist activities. Her international clientele included Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
