Sequined evening dresses were fashionable throughout the 1920s and 1930s.
This dress belonged to Mrs Jane Moreton (neé Wilde,1900-1986), daughter of the Chief Officer on the Titanic, Henry Tingle Wilde, who perished with the ship in 1912. Jane married wealthy businessman Henry Stafford Moreton. Her busy social life gave her the opportunity to wear expensive clothes.
