Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This show-stopping evening gown was designed by Ronald Amey under his Burke Amey label in the early 1970s. Made from gold silk the bodice features an abstract floral pattern with embroidered metallic thread and bishop sleeves that fasten with silk covered buttons. The attached skirt is made of a bold swirling brocade tapestry - reminiscent of the Tzaims Luksus fabrics we've seen, though we have not been able to confirm at the time of listing. Fully-lined in golden silk, it fastens in back with a zipper and hook/eye closures. This fabulous piece also features sequins and bead detailing at the collar, cuffs and on the attached diamond-shaped belt. In excellent condition for its 40+ years of age, we note some teensy and skinny line pulls to the bodice, hard to see unless very closely inspecting. No size tag, but we're estimating this as a modern size small. Measurements: shoulders - 16in, bust - 34in, waist -26in hips - full, waist to hem - 41in, total length - 55.5in. Tagged Burke Amey.
