1960s Embroidered Silk Oscar de la Renta Gown

This 1960s embroidered silk organza gown by Oscar de la Renta is spectacular and even better in person then how it has photoed. Made out of a black silk organza, the fabric was then covered in hand embroidered vines, made from an off white heavy thread. The design is raised and applied in a way that each design that covers the dress is highlighted to maximum effect. The workmanship is wonderful. The bodice is plunged at the front and each sleeve billows above the cuffed wrist. It nips in at the waist and then the skirt is cut in a soft curving flare to the ground. I love the edging on the collar, cuffs and hems - they are little flat tassels that are a witty interpretation of an actual tassel. It is hand finished inside and all that work to the spectacular fabric is done by hand. It is museum worthy and very special. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in black silk crepe with unlined sleeves. It closes at the front with hidden set hook and eye. Each cuff closes with a hidden snap.
