Originally from Alberta, Wayne Clark left home to study design in Toronto. His career had a meteoric rise that started with an apprenticeship with London based designer, Sir Hardy Aimes and it was there that he developed his passion and craft by creating evening dresses for the Saville Row couturier.
This dress is made in the mid eighties with a rutched top and wired hem which billows outward. Outer material is semi sheer and multicoloured floral, and inner skirt material is a similar semi sheer fabric but in a black and white polka dot. Made by hand, the rutching and most of the entire dress is hand stitched with minimal machine finishing.
In very good condition with one spot of damage, there is a spot which could use mending near the zipper in the rutching which could easily be repaired with no trace as pictured. Otherwise, there are no tears, stains, or other damage.
18" from waist to hem
