The lable Jean Varon reveals it to be part of Alan Hughes' Jean Varon Avengers Collection launched in 1965 and sold in high street stores at the time. However, still extremely rare and collectable.

He claims it's screen matched ? The floral detailing does match up. I thought it unlikely that two dresses would be cut so identically, but I did think it odd that the actual dress she would have worn in the episode would have had that label.

As an update, this IS the original dress from the show as worn by Rigg. The owner has all the outfits history and provenance Wink

Is there anyway we check this on line?

Will this item be up for auction?

I don't think so Mike, as it happens I found out the chap who owns it had bought some of my collection back in 2007. He sent me a very nice message with the details, I'll see if it would be OK with him if I posted it here Wink

Four nice shots of Emma's halter-neck party gown from Honey for the Prince.
The halter-neck style catsuit, top, dress or gown which suited Diana so wonderfully well, was, of course, one of Mrs Peel's iconic fashion signatures Smile
