About

This 1960's asymmetrically bejeweled "Mr Blackwell Custom" creation is Mr. Blackwell at his classic best! Black rayon crepe extravagantly beaded and stoned for a one-shoulder effect--perfect for your holiday party!

name "Mr. Blackwell" came in the late-1950s when Richard Blackwell launched his clothing line. He was an important designer and during the 1960s he became the first in history to present his line on a television broadcast. His designer dresses sold for between $800 to $1,000 and were very successful. During the nearly two decade existence of the "House of Blackwell”, he was designer to Yvonne DeCarlo, Jayne Mansfield, Dorothy Lamour, Jane Russell and California first lady Nancy Reagan.
