About

Must see to believe!

Stunning black velvet with hand beadwork and embroidery ethnic inspired evening dress. It features long sleeves and a semi-scooped neckline. Its slightly raised collar sits on the neck perfectly. The dress fastens with a zippered and hook-and-eye at center back. Lined with 100% silk. We are dying to know who created this custom piece. Many believe it is a Tina Lesser but there are no tags attached.

*All MR Couture garments have been professionally cleaned and thoroughly checked before shipping, so that they are ready to wear upon arrival.
