"Gold Beaded Silk" Vintage 1960's Silk & Gold Beaded Dress UK 8 US 4


A classic silhouette rendered in a deep shade of olive green silk, embellished with gold and green beadwork, this original 1960's dress is a rare piece to behold and a perfect statement piece for your cocktail wardrobe.

The rounded neckline of the dress is framed by a beaded collar, embellished with longline gold glass bugle beads and statement brass coloured metal appliqués, which are in turn embellished with emerald green rhinestones and filigree metal work, framing the central sparkling marbled green and gold glitter cabochons. The detailed gold collar is edged with iridescent black glass beadwork in an undulating design. The collar joins the front and back of the neckline and becomes the shoulder straps, setting off the sleeveless cut of the dress. The fitted bodice is accented by tailored seams and darts, which draw the eye to the cinched in waistline. The elegant wiggle cut of the skirt line is finished with slits along each side seam along the hemline, completing this dress in a truly mesmerising and iconic 1960's silhouette.
