Gorgeous 70s metallic maxi dress made in Italy by Avanti! A salute to the 20s Art Deco period. It is made from a 100% glittery gold-tone metallic knit in rust, auburn, ecru and green. Click on last photo twice to fully appreciate the glitter.

The colours ripple from a circular deco emblem on both sides of the skirt. This ripple effect is also evident on the cuffed snap down arms whereas the high collared top is done in a solid shimmery rust. Easy on and off with a long nylon back zipper. Our mannequin is a few sizes too small for the dress and the dress would be slightly more form fitting on an appropriate figure. Lightweight, very well made and sure to turn a few heads!

Photographed on a 5'10" size 3,4 mannequin.

Vintage size label: 12 and we estimate this would best fit a current size MS to M (6 to 8).

Please rely on the following for fit:

(laid flat and taken on the outside then doubled in inches - some give to fabric)
Shoulder to shoulder: 14.5
Bust: 36
Waist: 30
Hips: 36
Sweep: 54
Length - edge of back collar down: 52

Near mint condition! The only thing missing is the hang tag.

MINT: like new - no apparent wear
NEAR MINT: minimal, gentle wear from aging, no notable flaws
EXCELLENT: normal wear from aging, does not affect the wearing
VERY GOOD: worn, minor noted flaws, does not affect the wearing
GOOD worn and flawed only gentle wearing recommended
CUTTER: flawed - for study or as a pattern template
