1979 Bob Mackie Teal-Green & Black Beaded Fringe Backless Cocktail Dress
Seductive fully-beaded Bob Mackie designer cocktail dress dating back the the late 1970's. Mackie began his career as a Hollywood costuming sketch artist, working for both Edith Head and Jean Louis. While working with designer Ray Aghayan, Mackie soon began creating evening clothing for the divas who would make him a household name- most notably Carol Burnett, Diana Ross and Cher. This breathtaking teal-green and black showstopper is a perfect example of his genius. The bodice is a criss cross shelf-bust in a dynamic striped pattern. I love the draping fringe design which is a wonderful nod to flapper fashion. The alluring backless construction finishes this garment off with the perfect femme fatale vibe. I totally see this beauty shimmying down the red carpet.
This Bob Mackie designer beaded silk dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back-zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
