Evening Dresses. From our unique collection of Evening Dresses, this piece is offered for sale online by Timeless Vixen. Global shipping is available. Breathtaking 1920's museum-quality metallic gold-lame evening dance dress. The ethereal color palette touches a deep chord in our collective aesthetic consciousness. As fashion lovers, we never tire from antique metallics; they will always be fresh to modern eyes. It is in wonderful wearable condition; something that is becoming a rarity as time goes by. The lame is even more amazing when you realize that the skirt is all hand-pleated. The red-floral woven bodice adds another degree of charm that is irresistible. This is one of the best 1920's pieces I have ever seen and I would not be surprised to learn that it was a custom piece from one of the haute-couture Paris houses at the time. Making a bold and dramatic fashion statement, this could have been worn in Boardwalk Empire at the end of 1924.
Total Length:42 inches
