Stunning 1990s James Purcell Black Silk Velvet Strapless Gown w/ Dramatic Train

About

Drop dead gorgeous James Purcell black silk velvet strapless gown! Purcell was a very sought after designer in the late eighties/early nineties. However, his attention to intricate detailing, and his love for only the finest (most expensive fabrics) caused his demise in the fashion world --He rarely made profit on any of his pieces! This beauty is prime example!!! The softest jet-black silk velvet, with a lovely dramatic train. This silhouette is simply stunning! Lined in gorgeous lilac silk, with a hidden zipper down the back. In great condition--appears to have never been worn. Marked Size 4, but could also fit a 2. Measurements: 32 inch bust 28 inch waist 38 inch hips 49-55 inches in length
