This spectacular 1950's silver toned silk organza pleated dress is the perfect piece for your cocktail wardrobe.
The strapless cut of the dress is accented by a sweetheart neckline, set off by radiating pleated cups that stand away from the base of the bodice. The fitted and boned bodice is set off by gathered and draped pleats, creating an incredible textural design that draw the eye to the cinched in waistline. The elegant skirt, boasts pleats that radiate from the waistline into the length of the skirt to either side of the waistline, framing the central box pleats. The full circle cut of the skirt, completes this dress in an iconic 1950's silhouette.
The dress has been photographed with a medium petticoat to add volume to the skirt line. This is not included with the dress.
The skirt line of the dress has an element of sheerness to it, we recommend wearing a skirt slip to conceal ones modesty.
