'Formula One Dress' and accompanying bag, 1999
Sylvie Fleury HUGO BOSS
Hand tailored dress made from original Formula 1 fabric with printed logos and two-way zip, printed inner lining. 147.3 x 42 cm (length and shoulder width). Inscribed on the sewn-in textile label, dated: July 1999, signed: SFleury and numbered: 31/100 (black felt-tip pen). Copy 31 of 100 copies. Manufactured by HUGO BOSS.
