Yesterday I watched a film called Pretty Baby which was shot in the late ’70’s and features a young Brooke Shields and the story of a 12 year old growing up and being exploited in a brothel at the turn of the century in America. The imagery of the film including costume, furniture and locations are just beautiful as you can see from these screencaps I took.
It reminded me of the Gunne Sax dresses we have in our windows at the shop at the moment.
Gunne Sax was an American label which become known for the prarie style dresses in the 70’s. The designer behind the label is Jessica McClintock who specialised in well made and expensive long flowing muslin dresses.
