About

Gorgeous Thea Porter designer full length coat fashioned in the most beautiful black cotton-twill and textured metallic gold-lame dating back to the early 1970's. I love the nehru collar and over-sized side pockets. The open front silhouette allows you to wear it as a glamorous maxi dress or bohemian trench. She finishes the garment off with breathtaking Indian print lining. Thea Porter was largely inspired by fashion from the Victorian and Renaissance eras. This is easily identifiable by her use of luxurious fabrics and layered construction. During the early 1970's, her clothing attracted many celebrity customers who enjoyed wearing her erotic, yet comfortable, creations whose secret was to conceal rather than reveal. She admits her fashions were created in that particular style as she had "…always felt very envious of Arab women because they can hide behind their clothes, it is a very protected and secure way to feel." Admitting that some of her creations were far removed from anything an Arab woman would wear she said that she felt "It’s important that the end result should be my own romantic fantasies." This garment is truly unique and a rare piece of fashion history. Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Hips:up to 42 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:58 inches This Thea Porter Couture full-length jacket is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
