This mesmerising 1930's Lamé Dress, with a pattern of blooming flowers in gold lamé threads set against a black silk base, is a rare piece to behold.
The soft V shaped neckline is framed by wide shoulder straps and a sleeveless cut. The elegant fitted bodice, boasts a decorative diagonal seam, that runs from the left hand side shoulder line and joins the fitted waistline. The eye-catching line of the skirt is accented by Art Deco geometric seam designs along the front of the hipline in detailed triangular points, setting off the soft inverted pleat along the front of the skirt draping into the bias cut hemline. Finished with a soft V shaped backline, this original 1930's dress showcases the beauty and intricate design of the 1930's. This dress is fully lined in black silk.
