Digitally printed, wool jersey dress with scooped neckline and long narrow sleeves finishing at mid-calf. The dress features an abstracted, floral pattern of muted fluorescent colours against a dark grey ground. Cut so that there is no wastage, the dress incorporates the excess fabric, which is draped from behind to form a neck cowl and long drapery down centre front. There is a separate woven cotton belt which is held at the waist with belt loops.
