This is a 1960s Mini Mod Shift Dress by designer, Ole Borden. Ole Borden (b. 1922) was from Denmark. He moved to America in 1952, after working as a designer in Europe. He did the “Young Look” line at Lord & Taylor from 1959 to 1964. In 1964 Borden moved to Rembrandt, where he designed until 1974.
His dresses have become collectible in recent years as MCM and Mod had become more in fashion to appreciate and collect. Of these, his designs that had “innovations” like this one are the most desirable.
