1970s Lamé Dress

About

This is a sheath dress of metallic silver, green, and black brocade. Likely dating from the 1960s, the dress is made of a luxurious textured weave in shimmering metallic fibers. The geometric pattern is made of a grid overlaid with chain-like silver ovals, which march in symmetrical rows up the body and sleeves of the dress. This gives a body-lengthening effect to the dress, which gently skims the curves of the body to end in a flat knee-length hem. The neckline is a high jewel neck with a thin self-binding, and the sleeves have gentle volume through the shoulder before narrowing to the wrist. The mod style and decadent fabric of this dress make it a stunning choice for your holiday party or formal occasion.
