This 1970s vintage trapeze dress is styled with the most amazing beadwork. Substantial teardrop shape pearls and marquis cut faceted beads come together like pinwheels to form flowers, each one further accentuated with a bright clear rhinestone crystal in the center. Other smaller beads and sequins fall like petals throughout the skirt. The texture of the beadwork on the silk chiffon makes a wonderful 3D display, it is truly among the best beading I have seen...ever! The light coral color is like sherbet! I love the white pearls and bright crystals against the backdrop of the coral. One of my favorites!
Beautifully made with three layers of fabric. There's an inner dress of coral crepe, it is fairly substantial in weight. The middle layer is unbeaded silk chiffon. The outer layer is the beaded silk chiffon.
It pulls on over the head and closes in the rear with a metal zipper.
Label: Victoria Royal Ltd., Made in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong
