We’re sorting through the pieces for the upcoming auction and wanted to share these with you all. We have have 7 outfits from the short lived (7 months) Apple Boutique, in London. An American girl went to the boutique in February of 1968, spent all her money on clothes and had to return to US early….then never wore what she bought!
Here is some of the collection: The first dress is printed with a Japanese pattern and can be worn tied at the waist or hip. Second is a two piece metallic dress. Third is a silk dress, velvet vest and velvet wide leg pants, and last the Apple Boutique label. Garments were meant to be mixed and matched.
