About

An absolutely stunning fuschia sequined gown attributed to American designer Norman Norell. The iconic "mermaid gown" is a form-fitting sheath. Norell once said he believed "fashion's function is to enhance the beauty of a woman"--and this gown indeed performs its function! Thoroughly covered in hand-sewn sequins, the gown is dripping in vibrance, glamour, and sexiness.
