1950s Silk And Lamé Evening Dress And Cape
Luxurious mid-century glamour awaits you in yardage of this glorious fabric. Jacquard weave of lamé and silk, a heavier weight than the 1920s and 1930s, better suited for the structure of this gown. It's rare to find a dress like this of this era in an actual metal thread lamé and not the lurex, which was quickly replacing it. The lady who had this custom gown made obviously understood the value of better textiles. The sharp and classic design of this dress allows the subtle Indian pattern to shine. The strapless design allowing the wearer to herself to shine.
Decade: 1950s, 1960s.
