Made in the softest shade of dove grey chiffon and embellished with silver glass beads, silver rhinestones, and pearls, this mesmerising 1970's dress, in a pleated and draped design, is just the statement piece you were looking for.
The rounded neckline of the dress is accented by a fully embellished bust line, featuring 5 tiers of pearls, glass beads and rhinestones in fringed tiers, in a layered curve design, which sit above trailing grey bead intervals. The embellished bodice joins the back-line and fastens along the nape with two hook and eyes, setting off the wonderful rounded open back feature of the dress. The elegant shoulder line sets off the inset sleeves which are cut in full length angel designs, that drape along the skirt line. The empire line cut of the dress is accented by gathered pleats below each side of the bust-line that drape along the length of the skirt, which is fully lined in grey rayon. Completing this dress in a drape and iconic 1970s silhouette.
This dress has its original tags.
