Sorelle Fontana Vintage Dress Blue Lamè Wool Cocktail Party 1960s



Sorelle Fontana vintage 60s blue floral laminate dress. A rare museum dress in lamé, a typical fabric from the 60s. Lamé is a type of knitted fabric with thin strips of metallic fiber, usually in gold or silver; sometimes we see the copper lamé. Sleeveless with American collar and matching waist belt. Ideal for 60s events like ceremonies or cocktail parties. Excellent vintage condition, like new. The term lamè indicates a fabric laminated in different fibers, which is characterized by the interposition of flat threads of shiny metal with weft and warp threads. It is a type of ancient fabric, created to embellish the woven velvets of the sacred vestments to give them sacredness and prestige and to make it golden sheets were used that were obtained from the application of the gold leaf, which was worked by the so-called "goldbeater".
