This eye-catching 1960's dress, rendered in a floral brocade in shades of grey, turquoise, green and mustard yellow, set on a champagne silk coloured base with gold lurex thread accents and gold braiding details, is just the piece for that special occasion.
The high mandarin collar is edged with gold braiding that joins the rounded slit along the front of the neckline, setting off the gold pipping feature along the right hand side of the bodice, which is finished with two decorative gold braided frog button features.
The simple shoulder line, sets off the short length sleeves. The fitted bodice is accented by tailored darts along the bust-line and darts along the waist, which draw in the fitted cut of the waistline. The elegant column cut of the skirt-line is finished with slits along each side seam that run up from the hemline, completing this dress in an iconic and timeless silhouette.
