Description

This striking gown was couture crafted in the late 1960s to early 1970s. The fabric is really the star of the show; thick aqua jacquard is textured with geometric, floral and cloud-shaped embroidery in glittering metallic gold. This dress comes alive when it catches the light so perfect for more formal events or a glitzy evening do. Empire-line tailoring means it falls to the floor with generous swathes of fabric enveloping the wearer. The open collar and super wide lapel plays to the era’s tastes whilst a thick waistband in coordinating cloth cinches the silhouette. Finished with a hidden zip in tonal turquoise at the rear and fully lined in white viscose.

The dress is in superb vintage condition with no issues of any note and a good fit for up to a UK 12 or US 8. Of note, there are very generous seam allowances for alterations if needed. Unlabelled but superbly made and most likely in the US. Our model is a UK 8-10, US 4-6 and this was a little roomy on her.
