From my own Horrockses collection, a lovely blue floral cotton cocktail dress with a wrap-around cummerbund/sash. Skirt has unfortunately been cut down from its original length, but it's still a beauty!
From my own Horrockses collection. This dress has a little tie detail to the front which gives the effect of a separate bolero. Filthy when I purchased it!
in Britain, long-established Lancashire cotton goods manufacture Horrockses Crewdson & Company Ltd set up fashion subsidiary Horrockses Fashions in 1946. It snapped up British artists’ offerings, including designs by Alastair Morton and Graham Sutherland. In the 1950s, the Horrockses dress came to epitomise the English cotton summer frock, worn by everyone including the Queen, Princess Margaret, and prima ballerina Margot Fonteyn.
