Vintage Pashtun Dress

True Bohemian chic. Vintage black 1950s Pashtun dress from the source – the estate of a diplomat who lived in Afghanistan – features embroidery to beat the band, trimmed with bullion ribbon with wonderful patina. Mirrors have true age.  Short zipper at nape of neck with side zipper, as well. This marvelous hand-tinted photograph featuring the former owner with her husband, shows her flair for dressing (other items of Vintage Clothing worn in this portrait are also in the Kakkoii Mono collection and are available for purchase).
