This regal sequin and rhinestone-encrusted cocktail-time number comes from the archive of the University of Maryland costume department. Black 1960s shift dress with intricate silver and grey floral print. The whole dress is sequined so it has a really nice weight. The pattern must be seen in person to be believed ! The work is so intricate it looks alive ! Very graphic and striking. I feel this could also work well for a Twenties themed party or event as the pattern has that Gatsby era feel to it.

Black velvet trim at neckline, sleeves, hem and up the left side. Fully lined. Zipper down the back. Excellent vintage condition. There is a zipper at the hem, as this dress probably had another component to it at some point.

Glam and vampy piece of couture history. No size marked.
