1990s Geoffrey Beene Burgundy and Green Satin Sequined Cocktail Dress

$3,750

About

An incredible medley of textures and bead work by Geoffrey Beene! This full length, long sleeved sequined bodice dress seems to have it all! A masterful display of red bead work accompanied by burgundy and black sequins on the bodice of the dress. The olive green satin skirt features a front slit and two large pockets that exaggerate the silhouette in the most artful way. The dress includes full zipper closure on the back. Geoffrey Beene began his career in the 1950s, designing under numerous New York houses including Teal Traina, finally opening his own label in 1963. Beene was incredibly conscious of the human body, and was particularly regardful of the figure in motion - as Beene once said “Clothing is nothing until it hits the body." His designs were created to work with the client’s body, encasing it lightly and giving it a more artful structure. Beene's reinterpretations of dress formality, use of synthetics, and unusual combination of materials (accessories in acrylic and diamonds, for example), set him aside from his contemporaries who focused on the business of fashion, rather than the artistry of fashion.
