Breathtaking Thea Porter 'Faye' couture dress fashioned in luxurious metallic-gold embroidered silk chiffon. The fabric has a touch of transparency to it and the effect is stunning. Just look at the gorgeous black and red color combination. The bodice is a chic high-neck with a sculpted bib empire. The flutter sleeves are cut wide and full. Each sleeve is edged with a double row of velvet trim which is mirrored at the bottom hemline. At the back is an unexpected bit of sexiness, as the length from neck to bust is left open in an elongated key-hole. Thea Porter was largely inspired by fashion from the Victorian and Renaissance eras and is easily identifiable by intricately decorated and layered fabric. During the early 1970's, her clothing attracted many celebrity customers who enjoyed wearing her erotic, yet comfortable, creations whose secret was to conceal rather than reveal.
This Thea Porter London couture gown is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working hand-set back hook and eye closures. Inside is lined in matching black silk. This designer garment is truly exquisite and an investment piece that will only increase in value.
