Early 1980s Yves Saint Laurent Gold & Black Velvet Dress

About

This dress is quintessentially eighties and the lines pure Yves Saint Laurent during this time period. It is made from a combination of a inky black velvet through the body with a gold flowers in a black silk chiffon adoring the sleeves and skirt. The floral design is made from a combination of gold lame eyelash thread and curving lines of velvet fused onto the silk. At the from of the dipped neckline sits a pretty flower made from velvet, feathers and beads. The lines through the body are long and lean and have an almost flapper quality to the cut. The sleeves are cut full and billow above each cuff. The skirt is made of the same fabric as the sleeves and falls in a sleek column with a touch of fullness. Both the sleeves and skirt are left unlined so you get a glimpse of the body underneath.
