Couture 1960s Burnt Orange Silk Chiffon Gown With Crystal Bead Embellishment
This magnificent late 1950s/ early 1960s silk chiffon beaded gown exudes haute couture quality and is in excellent vintage condition. The burnt orange silk chiffon overlay showcases some fabulous crystal embellishment and beading that covers the gown in its entirety. Silver-toned bugle beads are arranged to create a fine vertical striped design that intensifies around the bodice and is decorated at intervals in horizontal waves of prong set crystal rhinestones and tear drop shaped beads. The fitted V neckline and shoulder straps feature bugle beads lifting away from the surface fabric to create a textured, pronounced trim interspersed with rhinestones. The bodice is lined with a thick satin fabric and has concealed cups sewn into the lining to support the bust. The bodice syncs neatly at the waist before flaring out into an elegant floor sweeping skirt. Layers of underskirt in silk organza, sateen and soft net at the hem excite beautiful movement in the fabric in a true Hollywood Silver Screen style that simply glides when worn. The designer of this exceptional piece is unknown, however it is a rare and remarkable piece of couture. Would best suit US size 2-4, UK size 6-8.
