Whether its a summer party, a night at the ballet or an evening dancing your own heart out, whatever suits your style, make it your very own and start a new chapter of its exciting journey through the decades.

This dress does have a fair few tears, fading marks and stains in the top layer of fabric, but although it appears to be so worn and old, because of its structured and well made lining, it is still in could definitely have years left in it to see and be seen by the world.
