Balmain dress item description tag

A handwritten description tag attached to Vivien Leigh's Balmain dress at the Fashion Museum Bath. The tag describes the piece as a 'cocktail jacket' which would have been worn over the dress with matching fur and beaded cuffs. The tag states that the piece is 'possibly Balmain', 'worn by Vivien Leigh' - speculations affirmed in the accession card notes which note the piece had been correctly identified as a Balmain creation.
