Large ballerina style dress, based on similar dresses from the 1950's, but using plastics rather than fabrics. Designed for a 1950s themed party, with the idea that drink spills and other stained could be removed by simply hosing it down after use.
In 2005, Jenny wore this floating in the swimming pool at her St Kilda home, to illustrate a newspaper article in The Age newspaper, entitled `Staying Afloat', which looked at the challenges her business were facing at the time.
Dress made up of a white fishnet skirt and black fishnet bodice covered in clear plastic which has been splashed with red, yellow and black Dulux paint. The dress has an inside tie at the waist and a red tie at the top with red trimming at the neckline.
