Princess A Line Brown Velvet Coat Dress Aristos Of Carnaby St XS/S. A magnificent piece of UK British fashion history.
Aristos Constantinou, a graduate from UK London College it Fashion in 1965 and an employee of Mattli a Mayfair Couturier started his own business on Carnaby Street - one of the first designers to do so. And he progressed from there renowned for bringing couture avant- garde fashions to the street.Those who know me will be familiar with my respect for designers who specify and use only the best fabrics and apply only the best methods of construction to their work. Aristos, later joined by his brother in 1961 were a formidable team constructing feminine and unique garments from velvet, and latterly a chenille type fabric developed in conjunction with a scottish furnishings fabric mill.
By supervising every stage of garment construction from fabric, haberdashery and tailoring thus their label, Ariella Fashions survives today despite Aristos dying tragically in 1985. A beautifully tailored A line coat/dress in two tone brown velvet, generous shawl collar, belt and pockets. The epitome of originality, and excellent feminine trend setting design.
