Brilliantly coloured acrylic dresses by Japanese designer Issey Miyake live up to the magnificent setting of the Rambagh Palace Hotel in Rajasthan, once the home of the Maharajah of Jaipur. Creases fall out before your very eyes, the material swirls out in movement and in repose, falls flatteringly close to the body.

Shoes by Charles Jourdan. Photographed by Packy Cannon.

Scanned by Miss Peelpants from Harpers and Queen, April 1976.
