Vintage LUIS ESTEVEZ Dress - Flame Red Silk Cocktail Party


Absolutely breathtaking hot pink jersey vintage 1960s beaded goddess evening gown. Talk about an entrance-maker! Very Mad Men. Specifically, very Betty Draper.

Heavily beaded and sequined around its collar and empire waist - all done by hand. The bodice is heavily draped, with the band of sequins and beads around the waist giving the illusion of it being belted, and then the luscious rayon jersey falling open gradually as it nears the hem. The skirt has quite a full sweep, and is so graceful when you move.

The shoulders are slightly cut in, and it has two interior bra cups on the bodice, so if you don't want to wear a bra with it, you don't have to. There's a long seductive slit from under the beaded collar to about three inches above the empire waist.

This piece was made in Hong Kong during its peak of making finely made, couture quality clothing in the 1960s. The metal zipper is stitched in by hand, the lining is as well. The level of workmanship (not to mention the design itself) is exquisite.

A fabulous red carpet-worthy vintage evening gown!

The Condition: Excellent, gorgeous. I'd say flawless and near mint, but for some minor very small and faint gray marks on the very edge of the hem - that's being picky, because you really can't see them and they certainly do *not* detract a single whit from the beauty of this gown.

The Shipping: Delivered by hot pink sequined candelabra (Priority International, including insurance).

Yoohoo, International buyers! Your country may charge you customs fees on your purchase, which you're responsible for paying. Just so you know ahead of time and aren't unpleasantly surprised :)
