Brand - Youth Quake. 

Youthquake was created by Karl Rosen & Paul Young of the Puritan Dress Company. They decided to bring together much of the up and coming talent in Europe, like Mary Quant and Emmanuelle Khahn along with a group of Young Americans like Betsey Johnson, Deanna Littell and Joel Schumacher. They opened a boutique called Paraphernalia and it took off. By 1968 there were 44 Paraphernalia franchises in the US. The last one closed in 1974 when most of the bright, young talent had moved on. 

Condition - Good vintage condition.

Has been freshly laundered so is ready to wear. 

This label is very rare these days. There are only a handful of them available to buy online and even then those ones are mod style dresses. 

This pretty vintage maxi dress is made from a chiffon feel polyester fabric in white pink & green floral print.

It has a straight neckline to the front of the dress and it fastens to the back with a metal zip and hook. 

With shoulder straps. 

It is maxi in length with a floaty overlay bodice. 

The dress is maxi in length and lined. 

This also comes with a long matching chiffon scarf/shawl. 

Gorgeous for summer.

Please note that the dress is being shown pinned to fit the mannequin.

Vintage sizes often come up smaller than day sizes. For this reason we measure each of our garments and estimate the modern day size of it based on today's fashion industry standards.

Chest – 37”
Waist – 32"
