Vintage 1960's, 70's Silk Evening Dress with hand beaded Floral, Vine and Leaf Pattern. This dress comes from a family member of the designer of this dress, they were sold in the 1970's in boutiques on Madison Ave in New York City and Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, CA. This dress, couture level of design and tailoring, completely lives up to its provenance. The beads are stitched to create each flower, leaf and vine so that the overall design pops off the teal silk in splendor. From the empire waist, the skirt falls straight down to the ankles. The bead work trails vertically down the skirt to elongate the sheath silhouette. This dress is pure elegance from top to bottom, from inside to out, with great attention to detail, styling and construction, it is one of the finest dresses we've had the honor of representing on this site.
The dress is fully lined, expertly tailored and zips up the rear with a hidden nylon zipper.
Condition: Excellent. Tiny bit of surface dust around the bottom of the hem and one small hole in the underside of the hem that cannot be seen from the outside. This dress has been in storage since the 70's. I bought this from the actual designer and the zipper was only basted into the dress. As you can see in the image of the back of the dress, the stitches have all come loose so the zipper will need to be sewn back into the dress. We elected to leave it like this in case alterations are needed for the new owner. Let us know however, I can have the zipper sewn back into the dress before shipping. In that case, this is not eligible for overnight shipping.
Length 56 1/2" from top of shoulder strap to hem.
