This incredible 1950's silk dress in a soft shade of champagne dusk, embellished with a pattern of sequins and beads in shades of grey, silver and purple is the perfect piece for any special occasion.
Her V shaped neckline is framed by a sleeveless cut, and a border of beaded embellishments, that trail along the neckline and down the centre front of the bodice.
Her fitted bodice is accented by princess seams, that join the waistline and the matching fabric waist ties, that set off the cinched in waist.
Her elegant A line cut skirt, creates an iconic silhouette.
