1960s Neiman Marcus Gold Beaded Gown

This dress is an unusual combination of a few thoughts that oddly seem to work. The bust is been heavily beaded - thousands and thousands of tiny seed beads cover every bit of fabric in the top and make that almost camouflage looking pattern. The neckline is cut high and attaches front to back high up on the top of the shoulder, while the arm holes curve down - this gives it a slight halter top feel. The waist cinches in and is emphasized by a wide black sating sash which is original to the dress. The skirt is very full and shockingly light. It has a silk interior over which a lace net has been applied and then looped gold detailed ribbon swirled over. Very unusual and pretty - no designer label other them the one Neiman Marcus used on the late 50s through the mid sixties. Excellent condition.
