Maggie Norris Haute Couture Tulle Bodice Hand Sewn Gold Beads and Soutache

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Exquisite is the best word to describe this piece! The delicate tulle seems to disappear and the gold bullion or metallic soutache becomes body jewelry. The soutache is hand sewn in a flower and vine motif which is edged with delicate little beads sewn with gold metallic thread. It is just stunning. The bodice has a low cut neckline and a racer back. It closes on the left side with clear snaps, no detail has been overlooked. This top is in excellent condition.
Maggie Norris Couture clothing has been exhibited at FIT as well as the City Museum of New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. After working as the Senior Design Director at Ralph Lauren for many years she established her own Couture Atelier in New York in 2000.
