1960's Mr. Blackwell Navy-Blue Beaded Silk Flapper Mini Dress


Exquisite mini-shift cocktail from the famous "Mr. Blackwell". The fully-lined silk is lavishly embellished with white sequins,glittering rhinestones and hand-beadwork. The silhouette is a flattering low-cut plunge, a-line, with unique vertical and horizontal mod motifs. I love the dramatic scalloped hemline! The New York Times in 1963 quoted a buyer from San Antonio as saying, "When Mr. Blackwell designs a dress, he keeps in mind how a woman wants to look across a table." That statement is very true when one looks at this stunning show-stopper. A timeless garment that is perfect for any modern event. Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:30 inches Hips:37 inches Total Length:36 inches This vintage designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. After close inspection, we found slight tarish to the beadwork and a few missing sequins which is not noticeable when worn. Perfectly working back-zipper. This item is over 40 years old and is truly stunning!
