Untouched by time, this incredibly rare 1920's candlelight cream silk dance dress still casts its magical spell. This exceptional Art Deco beauty is fashioned in luxurious mid-weight silk satin that has been lavishly embellished with hundreds of shimmering glass beads and sparkling prong-set rhinestones. The floral petal motif beaded in a golden yellow hue adds the perfect amount of color to this ethereal showstopper. The construction is unbelievable; dramatic diamond shaped cut outs around the neckline with an ultra alluring mid-drift birdcage style cut out. The same panel cutwork design is repeated for the skirting and this flapper fringe movement is sensational. Extravagant garments from the 1920's remain a perennial favorite, perhaps because no other period combined opulence with such a playful flair. The effortless silhouette embodies the flapper's 'party till dawn' attitude while the couture craftsmanship whispers wealth and status. This would make an epic red carpet or bridal moment. The mark of a truly fashionable garment is that it remains stylish and timeless even 100 years later, as does this wearable work of art.
This 1920's cream silk couture dress is in beautiful wearable condition. I wouldn't be surprised if this creation was by a famous designer, as it has all the hallmarks of a couture piece from this era. Slips on over the head with no additional closures. Only sign of age is wear around the armholes which could be professional addressed. Please message for detailed pictures. A gorgeous investment dress that will increase in value.
