Court Dress Designed by Hartnell for Lady Jowitt when presented at Court following her husband's appointment as Attorney General. Court Presentations were stopped during the First World War but recommenced in 1921. The occasion required gowns which were glamorous but conformed to court dress regulations. In this stunning silk and gauze gown, Hartnell has used beads and embroidery to create an effect of winter snow. At court it would have been worn with a train and a feather headdress.
