1970's Bill Gibb London Couture Metallic Gold Sheer Lace Babydoll Mini Dress
A truly magical and ultra rare Bill Gibb of London couture metallic gold lace tunic babydoll dress dating back to his 1978 fall-winter collection. His pieces are very collectible and found in museum's around the globe. As shown, a very similar metallic gold tunic is archived at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Bill Gibb, a forgotten fashion hero from the Scottish Highlands, incarnated the romantic essence of British style. While attending the Royal College of Art his fellow fashion students were Ossie Clark and Zandra Rhodes, who shared an unbridled vision. The fabric used for this piece is sensational; heavenly light-weight sheer metallic gold lace in the prettiest floral motif. The ruffle collar braided tie-neck design works so well with the sparkling crystal buttons running down the front and by each flared cuff. You can definitely be bold and wear this garment alone as a micro mini, pair it with some trousers or layer it as an over jacket for a totally different look. The movement of the scalloped hemline really brings out the bohemian chic essences. This would make a stunning holiday party or wedding guest look. It's a timeless piece simply because it exudes an undeniably unique style and yet remains incredibly current.
