1960's Mr. Blackwell Navy-Blue Beaded Silk Flapper Mini Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Exquisite mini-shift cocktail from the famous "Mr. Blackwell". The fully-lined silk is lavishly embellished with white sequins,glittering rhinestones and hand-beadwork. The silhouette is a flattering low-cut plunge, a-line, with unique vertical and horizontal mod motifs. I love the dramatic scalloped hemline! The New York Times in 1963 quoted a buyer from San Antonio as saying, "When Mr. Blackwell designs a dress, he keeps in mind how a woman wants to look across a table." That statement is very true when one looks at this stunning show-stopper. A timeless garment that is perfect for any modern event.

This vintage designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. After close inspection, we found slight tarish to the beadwork and a few missing sequins which is not noticeable when worn. Perfectly working back-zipper. This item is over 40 years old and is truly stunning!
