Black Beaded Burnout Velvet Evening Dress w Statement Sleeves & Handkerchief Hem

US$695

About

This is an absolutely gorgeous vintage black midi length black dress that came from the estate of a woman who owned incredible designer clothing. Her stunning wardrobe included rare designer pieces, avant garde clothing, and sensational mid to late century pieces created by Givenchy, Bill Blass, Valentino, France Andrevie, Chanel and other iconic designers. This dress is clearly designer made but has no label remaining. She did remove her labels sometimes, which is always a challenge for us as the buyers, but this was made so well it had to have been very expensive when she purchased it in the 1980's. The burnout velvet is in an abstract animal print design. There are dramatc dolman statement sleeves with buttons at the cuffs, and the dress has a lovely handkerchief hem made of layers silk chiffon and velvet. The dress closes with a back zipper and has shoulder pads. The beading is simply exquisite and the photos just aren't able to capture the beauty of this piece, so be sure to use the zoom tool to view the details! We estimate the dress to fit a modern day size 2/4. BUST: 34" WAIST: 24" HIPS: 34" LENGTH: 54" to longest tip of hem.
