Classic Bob Mackie Black Beaded Evening Gown Silver Gold Braid Detail Sz10 1980s

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This fabulous evening gown was made by Bob Mackie in 1982, around the time he opened his ready-to-wear boutique. Made from black silk, it's covered in tons of black jet beads and features a braid of silver and gold beads and white rhinestones at the chest and down through the front. So chic! In excellent condition for its age, we note a few missing beads at the back, hard to see unless closely inspecting. Also, the original owner added the shoulder straps to this piece, which can easily be removed by the new owner. Note that we were unable to fully zip the dress onto our mannequin due to its size, however the zipper works perfectly. Tagged size 10, it measures, taken flat: bust - 38in, waist - 28in, hips - 38in, length - 55in.
