Amazing art deco style dress dating from the 80s, with incredible beadwork covering the entire dress. The shape itself is very simple, a shift style with short capped sleeves, a large open keyhole feature at the back, and a shallow round scoop neckline. The dress is lined, and on top of that is a sheer chiffon/crepe style viscose.

The chiffon layer is embellished all over with the most amazing patterns of bead work, mainly bugle beads but also small round beads and some clusters of sequins. The sleeves have a beautiful scalloped edge, and the neckline and hem are edged with a thick bead trim. The colour of everything is a rich dark pruple.

Due to the weight of the beads on the sheer fabric, this dress has a beautiful movement to it, so it is a great party dress for catching the light and shimmering. A wonderful deco style cocktail gown for the party season.

No label.

Fibre: viscose chiffon/crepe, lining polyester. The dress also has shoulder pads, these could be removed if desired.
