Laura Ashley 1980s
While Jessica McClintock revived the Prairie Gown with her Gunne Sax line in the 1970s, the more haute couture versions of Prairie and vintage looks came to us through the stunning creations of British designer, Laura Ashley. She used finer imported cottons and voiles and in the images above and below we can see perfect examples of this look at it's best. Vintage elements were really brought out in the accessories like the straw hat and crochet gloves below.
