Black & white print dress with a bow

Emma Knuckey gained a reputation for beautifully cut garments, self described as "pure uncluttered design and line which would take the wearer anywhere from morning to dinner at night". She imported her fabric from Europe, very clear that her business was founded on the quality of the material, and the quality of the garment.
