Jet dress fabric, Lucienne Day, c.1947

This dress fabric, printed on Moygashel spun rayon, illustrates the cross-fertilisation between Lucienne and Robin’s work. His Jet exhibition poster prompted the design; Lucienne’s interpretation is lighter and more playful, created with women’s fashion in mind.
