A Vintage Dress with a Secret Message

Bookmark and Share

This dress was recently listed and it's a bit of a mystery to me. I love novelty dresses but this vintage early to mid 1980s dress has more of a message. Possibly political, certainly social. There are the words "Franks Rous", "T85" and "World" written on the skirt along with peoples faces and buildings. 

I get a retro communist propaganda vibe to this, and considering it was made by Hsu Mei, I could be on the right track with communist China. It's fun trying to figure this out! 

What does it say to you?
