Description

This magnificent late 1960s silk chiffon beaded gown exudes haute couture quality and is in excellent vintage condition. The burnt orange silk chiffon overlay showcases some fabulous crystal embellishment. Silver-toned bugle beads are arranged to create a fine vertical design which intensifies around the bodice interspersed with horizontal waves of prong set crystal rhinestones and tear drop shaped beads. The V neckline and shoulder straps feature bugle beads lifting from the surface to create a pronounced trim. Lined with opulent satin, the bodice has concealed cups to support the bust. The bodice tucks neatly at the waist before flaring into an elegant floor sweeping skirt. Layers of underskirt in organza, sateen and soft net at the hem excite movement in the fabric in a true Hollywood Silver Screen style that simply glides when worn. The designer of this exceptional gown is unknown, however it is a rare and remarkable piece of couture. Would best suit US size 2-4, UK size 6-8.
