Labels and date

Janet Reger's sensuous, colour co-ordinated lingerie, incorporating silks, satins and lace applique, perfectly fitted the 1970s mood for nostalgia and glamour. This bias-cut mini-slip with lavish lace insets testifies to the continuing romantic appeal of such garments for a wealthy international clientele. [1997]
