About

Stunning vintage 1960's gown from former Charles James apprentice, Arnonld Scaasi in beautiful black and gold silk cut work embroidery on a firm black net background. Bustier style with an inner boned corset and grosgrain waistband to hold the dress in place. The fabric is amazing- intricately embroidered in abstract paisleys and scrolls in gold and black silk threads. The top and hem of the dress is formed using the shapes in the fabric. The dress is fitted to the waist and then falls into a full skirt, slightly fuller in the back where it is supported underneath with tulle and buckram at the hem to hold the shape. The dress is fully lined in silk, has a center back hand stitched zipper and hand stitched couture finishes.
Excellent condition.
