Caroline Charles' clientele has included prestigious women like Princess Diana, Marianne Faithfull, Barbra Streisand and Emma Thompson, all of whom fell for the ladylike elegance of her designs. This breathtaking dress is a perfect example of Caroline's opulent style, from the fall 1993 collection which Charles described as 'gothic meets dandy' and she featured this collection in the book of her career where the final design on the runway was in the same fabric as this dress, in a non-traditional bridal gown, which this dress would also be perfect for. In a black tulle with a beautiful flocked velvet thoughout, the dress is lined with two layers of petticoat underneath, making the most of the full skirt, and a further taffeta lining that is sleeveless on top to create a sheer look on the sleeves and neckline. Condition: Excellent Vintage Condition - No noticeable stains, tears or holes. Some marking to lining, not seen when worn. - Fully lined - Back zipper Materials: 100% Polyamide Caroline Charles Flocked Velvet on Tulle Vintage Formal Evening Ball Gown Dress, A/W 1993
