A classic silhouette rendered in a cream accented by gold lurex thread soutache embroidery and sewn on faceted beads in shades of coral, turquoise and gold, this original 1960's dress is the perfect piece for your cocktail wardrobe.
The V shaped neckline is framed by pleated shoulder straps that join along the centre of the bodice beneath a straight cut modesty panel. The fitted bodice is accented by a soutache and beadwork embellished panel that draws the eye to the cinched in waistline. The elegant longline cut of the skirt is accented by box pleats along the front and back from beneath the waist panel, completing this dress in an iconic 1960's silhouette. This dress is lined in rayon.
