Love or collect vintage gowns? Here is a rare, unusual and gorgeous gown from the 1990s that is truly a wow piece - - a slender stretchy column of bronze/black floral-patterned lacy mesh embellished all over with tiny beads.
The neckline, arm and hemline are beautifully finished with beaded edging. The fabric is substantial and not flimsy and has some weight, drape and movement to it. This dress needs no accessories to make a stunning appearance at any formal event.
Add strappy sandals and it is ready to go. This gown looks and feels amazing to wear and it is super flattering and comfortable. No zipper or fasteners - - just pops over the head. Ideal to pack for a trip or cruise. The dress fabric is semi-sheer and comes with a brown full slip with adjustable straps that fits perfectly under the dress.
The dress could be worn over a black or nude slip as well. The slip is stretchy and probably polyester, but the tags were removed as they were white and scratchy. The slip is size Small. The dress is Vivienne Tam vintage size 1 which is Small.
Dress is stretchy, but fitted and body-con so please check measurements very carefully. Measurements of dress unstretched: chest at underarm 30 inches; waist 26 inches; hip at widest part 30 inches; length from center neck back to hem bottom 56 inches; circumference at hem bottom 50 inches. The gown fabric is 60% acetate, 30% nylon, 10% spandex. Note that the care tag indicates the dress cannot be dry cleaned or washed, just spot cleaned, due to the delicate nature of the fabric. As-is condition due to a few loose beads, but overall the dress is in excellent condition.
