About

There are lots of lovely 1920's garments still around, but every once in a while I come across one that sets my heart a flutter! This is an extraordinarily beautiful and exceptional 1920's French couture museum quality silk-chiffon dance dress. The watercolor rose-garden scenic design is pure wearable art. It is embellished all over with ivory glass-beads, whose circular cut creates a dazzling sparkle. The work is entirely hand applied with 3-dimensional aspects throughout. My favorite detail is the dramatic cut-out backside which is so incredibly modern. The looped fringe hemline really sets this garment apart from other flapper dresses of the time. It is amazing that a piece with this amount of presence can literally feel almost weightless but it does. So romance and rare! The pictures say it all.
