gold lame Kimono with the tag Travilla inside. On further research it seems like it is from the tv show Dallas worn by Sue Ellen Ewing on the Episode Oil Baron III season 8 designed by William Travilla
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful Kimono. Such vintage designer clothes and accessories are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
It is a lovely Kimono in a stylish design. Stylewise it is late 1970s early 1980s which fits perfectly with the TV serie where Sue Ellen wore it. It appears to be well kept and in good condition. The designer of the Kimono William Travilla is a well know designer and items designed by him are usually sought after.
And in this case it the fact that the Kimono was worn in a famous tv-series adds to the value and may affect a selling price in an even more positive direction.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online vintage designer clothes and accessories auction, where I believe the Travilla Kimono has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the Kimono. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
