Vintage Bill Gibb Edwardian Inspired Cape 1970s

Vintage Bill Gibb Edwardian Inspired Cape 1970s

In the early 1970s unconventionality was the order of the day and Gibb was one of several young designers whose work reflected this trend. He responded to the new predilection for romantic and ethnic clothes, inspired by the folk costumes of Europe. Always an individualist, Gibb was faithful to his own design principles, which relied on the enterprising and ingenious use of textures, weaves, and patterns in fabrics and knitting. He was probably best known for his evening gowns and exotic fabrics embellished with appliqués or heavily embroidered nets and lace, silks, brocades, and chiffon panels.
