1960s Oscar de la Renta Green & Gold Silk Gown

This Oscar De la Renta gown is just waiting for the perfect party! The construction is quite interesting on this one - the outer layer is actually a sheer organza upon which the metallic design is worked onto in stripes. I love that the stripes seem to change in "weight". This is cleverly done by placing some of the golden threads above and some below the fabric. The collar, front, hem and each cuff has a heavy band of gold and silver braiding detail. I love the shape and cut - it is classic hostess gown and very glamorous with a full skirt that flows to the floor and is perhaps a touch fuller then how it photoed. It has a high neckline and little ruffled cuffs that are caught up in a detail of that same braiding that runs down the front. A fabulous and early Oscar design that is even better in person. Excellent condition

Fully lined, including the sleeves, with a matching silky grosgrain fabric and closes with a painted metal zipper and hook & eye at the back neck. Hand finishes. It is even more lime and gold in person.
