Oscar de la Renta Black Velvet Gown with Gold Netting

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Drop dead gorgeous! This gown is dramatic in a way you just don't see anymore. The sweeping floor length column of black velvet is sumptuous and rich, coming to an angular point at the sternum to contrast the long folds of the skirt. Trimmed with a densely beaded gold collar and cuffs, the sleeves and shoulders of the dress are formed by open gold metallic netting with occasional rhinestones punctuating the material. This gown is the epitome of glamorous, vintage Oscar de la Renta.
Please note, this piece is sold as is due to some loosening threads in the gold netting. Also, the back features a full zip from waist to collar - unfortunately the mannequin is too large to demonstrate this.

About Oscar de la Renta

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
