1960s Blush Pink Metallic Victor Costa Mod Shift Dress

The classic shift dress from the sixties never seems to go out of style and when its as great as this little option it is easy to see why. Victor Costa was particularly great at taking high end designs and making versions that were more affordable but still of a really good quality. His earlier pieces especially seem to stand up to time.  This particular dress is a great example of that. It is made of a metallic brocade that has weight enough to hold its shape but is not so thick as to feel awkward when worn. The colors are lovely - a pale blush, or nude pink tint mixes with black and silver. The cut is simple with now sleeves and a body skimming line.  The skirt has just a touch of a little A-line flare. I love the attached embellished belt that allows you to cinch it on or wear it loose and low. Its encrusted with big jet black faceted beads, rhinestone attached to silver cording and velvet ties. Hidden side pockets are the perfect finish. Excellent condition.

Interlined in cream silky rayon and closes at the back with a painted metal zipper. The attached belt is in fantastic condition, original and made of a black velvet with silver cording, beads and rhinestones. It closes with hook & eye so can be easily adjusted for the perfect fit if needed.
