This is a quality vintage designer piece from the late 1960's to early 1970's.
Established in early 1968, fashion label "Levison Originals" was the creation of a young Sarah Levison-Marder, whose knitwear pieces became very successful within the London fashion scene.
With a manufacturing base in the picturesque island of Gozo, Malta, garments were imported and sold to the British public from a Mortimer Street boutique in the heart of Fitzrovia, Mayfair, London
Sally Levison self-donated several of her original designs to the V&A Museum in London, and her pieces are now considered very rare and highly collectible. Sally Levison passed away in 2006.
The Victoria & Albert Museum: Sally Levison perceived that knitwear was undergoing a radical transformation and caught the mood for coordinated and “mix and match” outfits. Her short-lived but internationally successful business was set up on the small Maltese island of Gozo in 1968. She employed up to one thousand knitters and crocheters and in 1970, encouraged by the Maltese government, set up a factory. The business was sold to Mary Farrin in 1973.
