This jumper was designed and manufactured in Melbourne by Prue Acton P/L circa 1987. According to the donor, it was originally worn with a matching skirt and/or coat. The look was inspired by Prue Acton seeing English singer David Bowie in a pale blue suit. The colours were typical of the time, but half-tones in pastel (such as this blue/grey, described by the donor as Ice Blue) were an innovation.
