One owner, who bought in the US store in the 1960s. DR is Design Research, the company/store that first sold Marimekko in the US in the 1960s. They went out of business in the mid-1970s, so a Marimekko dress with the original DR label is proof of its authenticity and age.
Note: Model is wearing the same dress but from the 1980s Please see other photos for the actual dress.
Vuokko Nurmesniemi was a principal designer for Marimekko and known for bold color and shape combinations, whimsical looks. May be responsible for this design!
