About


Gorgeous Thea Porter Couture hostess gown. The gown is primarily composed of purple devoré burnout velvet in a floral motif. The gorgeous magenta fuchsia silk collar features pink and purple stripes running to the center of the gown. Purple and silver-tone beads run horizontally and diagonally between the stripes. The caftan-like gown has multiple pink silk tassels hanging from the waist and sleeves, as well as a pink silk cord tie closure with hook and eye hardware. Like many of Thea Porter's pieces being Middle Eastern inspired, the gown is reminiscent of traditional Moroccan attire.
