Title

Self-Designed Black Fringe and Sequin Dress, Undated

Description

This black fringe and sequin dress was one of many Jean designed for her performances, and was also one of her personal favorites. It is a mock wrap-around style, featuring her signature fringe on one side in black and black sequins on the other. The fringe side is sleeveless while the sequin side (the wearer's right) has a full long sleeve cuffed with a sparkling beaded cuff. The neckline, which wraps around and continues down to meet four silver jeweled buttons, is made of long silver glass beads with additional white gem trim, in total about an inch in width. The dress has a black metal zipper in the back and would fall to just past knee length. This is also the dress Jean wears in photo JMK_2017_7_8_0001, "Jean in Self-Designed Dress, 2002" also in the Jean Kittrell Digital Collection.
