Bias Cut Backless Gown In Hand Embroidered 1920s Silk With Fringe & Coral Beads

About

We made this gown in the style of 1990s Galliano and McQueen, that decadent era of bias cut romance and embellished glamour. This piece is made from an antique Chinese hand-embroidered piano shawl. The hand embroidery is done in silk thread with a three dimensional and tactile quality. The neckline is trimmed in handmade Victorian lace from Paris. The straps are strung on jewelry wire and are made of real coral with a hand carved bakelite clasp. Lined with silk in the bust.
