1960's Mr. Blackwell Beaded Ivory-White Draped Chiffon Grecian Goddess Gown

About

Exquisite 1960's ivory-white sparkling evening gown by the famous "Mr. Blackwell" custom label. The bodice is an alluring asymmetric jeweled-illusion which will turn any woman into a vixen. Blackwell carefully placed remarkable beadwork & rhinestones in deco-floral patterns. This gives the garment so much movement and interest. The seductive grecian draped-side hourglass finishes this masterpiece off with the perfect "femme fatale" vibe. I love the dramatic side slit! The New York Times in 1963 quoted a buyer from San Antonio as saying, "When Mr. Blackwell designs a dress, he keeps in mind how a woman wants to look across the room." That statement is very true when one looks at this stunning garment. So breathtaking and timeless! Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:27 inches Hips:36 inches Total Length:55 inches This garment is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back-zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning.
