Description

    Janis Joplin's Knit Dress. A gorgeous, scoop-necked knit mini-dress, Colin Rose original design, owned and worn by Janis Joplin. A gift from Joplin to Christine Brooks, then Publicity Director for the Fillmore, this dress was one of two Joplin owned of the same design; the other was the beige version she wore at the Monterey Pop Festival, her first major public appearance. Given to Brooks on a visit to Joplin's home, the dress has been a treasured item ever since; this is the first time the piece has been available for auction. Luminous metallic blue threads woven throughout the violet dress add glimmer, and while incredibly short (it's a very mini mini), the dress must have looked stunning on Joplin, with its bell sleeves accentuating her every gesture. A rare, one of a kind treasure from the wardrobe of "Pearl." In Very Fine condition with three very small pulls to knitwork. Accompanied by LOA from Christine Brooks.
