1960s Metallic Oscar De La Renta Dress

This is a fantastic and beautiful early 1960s dress by Oscar De La Renta! It is shockingly light - I know it looks like it should not be with all that insanely fabulous gold - at first glance it appears to be a brocade, but the fabric is actually a light weight silk georgette, through which gold thread has been worked in so that the entire piece glows. The design on the fabric is glorious - corals, reds and even shots of pink are set against a black backdrop. The collar is pointed and chic and the front has a sexy V. The skirt is amazing - big squares of gold top a bold patterned hem. Current Oscar De La Renta pieces can fetch many thousands so buying a vintage piece is a excellent alternative and a smart investment move as well. The original belt is present and both pieces appear to be unworn. Excellent condition
