Dating to the F/W 1989 collection, this velvet bolero by Turkish-born designer Rifat Ozbek featured not only on the runway but also in several editorials of the era including US Vogue & The New York Times Magazine. Pieces from this collection, including the longer coat version of this jacket, were also selected by the Fashion Museum in Bath as 'Dress Of The Year' in 1989, a designation awarded to a design that 'encapsulates the prevailing mood of fashion, represents the past year and captures the imagination.' Made in Italy, this cropped bolero jacket features floral embroidered & sequin embellishment on purple velvet with leopard print lining. A sumptuous & exotic piece that nods towards the designer's heritage.
