Vintage 1960s 'Trina Lewis and Marjon Couture' Size 8 Turquoise metallic Floral Woven Evening Gown

£65.00

Product description

Star Woman
Metallics have catapulted back onto the fashion scene, just in time for the party season, but this year they’ve taken on a cosmic twist; with starry sequins, futuristic frocks and extraterrestrial textures. But it was the original space age revolution in the 60s that sky rocketed metallics on to the fashion scene, creating a sonic boom! With the moon landing in 69’ and Bowie’s futuristic hits in the 70s the best pieces of intergalactic wardrobe investments were purchased in those eras. So find a piece of dazzling vintage that really is out of this world!



This dress features a base fabric of a turquoise metallic floral motif in repeat over the surface of the dress. The neckline is a sweet heat shape with two thick shoulder straps. At the centre front there is a ruched rose for decoration. There us a drop waist with a gathered skirt that is full length. At the rear there is a zip for ease of fit. Underneath there is a netted petticoat to retain the voluminous shape of the skirt.

Wear with some black strappy heels for your next black tie dinner.

Chest 32"
Waist 26"
