Product description

Lovely 50s style dress from vintage Monsoon Twilight label. Made in the U.K.

This dress comes from an old label of Monsoon, the Twilight label, which was active from the 1980s to the late 1990s. Twilight was the formal, and more eveningwear focused section of Monsoon London. This dress is a classic example of the quality dresses they were known for creating. This silk dress comes in a lovely pattern of blues and purples.

This dress take some cues from the style of the 1950s, for example its full length style, its shape and the accompanying top attached to it. Underneath the skirt of the dress is netting which adds structure and shape to the dress to accentuate its width coming down. This gives the dress an hourglass shape.
