1960s Bob Bugnand Rhinestone Column Gown

Bob Bugnand pieces are a rare find indeed and this gown is just beautiful. It makes me think that is the type of piece that a girl like Audrey Hepburn would have worn - with her hair piled high to emphasize that sixties chic goddess feel it has. The white silk crepe skirt flows in a long and lean sheath from the high cut empire waist. The top is stunning - a rich and luxurious, jet black velvet is adorned with twisted bands of sparkling rhinestones that really pick up and accentuate that Grecian goddess feel the gown has. The rhinestones are glass so the dress has a good weight to it but when on, it does not feel heavy or cumbersome at all. Extraordinary. Excellent condition!

Fully lined in a white silk crepe. Ribbon finished interior seams. There is a built in half corset that is the height of the black velvet so you don't have to wear anything else. This is lightly boned and finished to a high degree. It closes with two zippers - one in the inner corset and one hidden set zipper at the back. Very slight yellowing to the fabric around the hem at the back but it present perfectly once on.
