1960s Irredescent Sequin Bill Blass Gown

This Bill Blass is an earlier version of the other one listing this week. This was a classic silhouette that he used through the years, with tweaks to the colors and design! This one has a little softer shoulders and the skirt is a more classic column and the overall cut softer and more loose. It is covered entirely in pink and purpler sequins so that the entire gown gleams and glistens in the light and the effect is quite startling and beautiful. Depending on how you look at it the color seems to ripple across the surface and you are never quite sure if it is pink or purple! Immaculately constructed and shockingly light and easy to wear! Excellent condition

Fully lined in an off-white silk organza and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each cuff has a zipper as well. Perhaps the very occasional sequin missing but no jarring bare spots or issues. Hand finished inside. Comes with its original belt that does show wear and small flaws on the back side but presents well. One of the hidden snap halves is missing but the other three are present to it does close with no issues
