1960s Gold & Brocade Oscar de la Renta Dress

A fabulous metallic thread maxi dress with an underlying "peacock" pattern and gold thread woven through the fabric! Oscar then took that fabric and made it pop even more with the addition of a flat braided gold metal thread ribbon that runs down the entire front of the dress, across the waist and has a flat bow to finish. The cording also has little knots of gold and colored rhinestones set on it for added glitter. The skirt cascades to the floor with an inverted pleat running down the center front. The silk chiffon is lightweight and the fabric really allows the skirt to swirl around you as you move. The top sits over the cording defined waist and skims over the torso. Each sleeve is left unlined and is cut simply. Really a lovely piece! Excellent condition.

Fully lined, except for the sleeves, in a red silk crepe. Closes with a back painted nylon zipper.
