A classic silhouette rendered in a mesmerising fully iridescent cream sequin embellished pattern, accented by silver and pearlescent beads, this original 1960's evening dress is a timeless classic.
The rounded scoop neckline of the dress is framed by a border of silver glass beads and pearlescent rounded bugle beads, contouring the décolletage. The medium width shoulder straps are embellished with matching silver and pearl beadwork, setting off the sleeveless cut of the dress, which boasts beadwork along the armholes. The elegant fitted bodice of the dress is accented by the repeat zig zag cream iridescent sequin pattern, which covers the entirety of the dress. The cinched in waistline, draws the eye to the tailored cut of the skirt, which is fitted along the hipline, completing this piece in an iconic hourglass silhouette. Finished with a split along the left hand side, side seam.
