1980s Wayne Clark Backless Silver Glitter Trained Chiffon Dress
If you loved the volume and excess of the eighties this dress will make you fall in love. It is very unusual in many aspects but once on the body it really looks wonderful. It is made from a black chiffon that has little silver strips of foil applied to the fabric in rows that run down the length of the dress. What is interesting is that some are applied on the top layer but most are applied underneath so they become muted and give the fabric depth and a sense of texture. The collar, cuffs and waist are defined by bands of silver glass tube beads, again applied in tightly spaced rows, The bodice is cut with a ton of volume that floats over a low drop waist. The sleeves are cut equally full and pouf from shoulder to cuff. From under the beaded band at the waist the skirt flows out to the floor and beyond to the trained back. To balance all of that fabric and the train, the back is scooped in a wide low curve to leave a bare expanse of skin. Excellent condition
Fully lined in a layer of black chiffon. It has no closures and is meant to slip over the head and sit low and loose on the body. The cuffs have loop & buttons to close.
