This is a gorgeous item from the Glamorous Night Club Scene of the 50s and very very wearable today.
Made in London by Sierra Designs, it was taken almost immediately into a private fashion collection of a celebrity.
The bodice is Black Chantilly lace which has an overlay of black sequins, the silk jersey skirt of the gown is exquisitely styled, with a faux fold over to the front. The waist is dropped, to compliment the wearer with a band of delicate pleated rayon jersey silk, with deep chevron to the centre front.....Divine!
It really is gorgeous and the cut, styling and workmanship are superb and just about perfect for any retro wedding, dinner dance and it’s suitable for either cocktails with stiletto heels and pearls or for evening with a fur wrap. The garment has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear.
Although the creation is sized, I have taken measurements, when the garment was laid flat, from seam to seam for you to compare against a similar item of ones own.
Guide size; 16
Underarm to underarm; 40”
