1960s Stanley Korshak Black Silk Beaded Gown

This silk gown has great, and classic, lines. It is cut to fall in one sheath is the front with the more dramatic detailing at the back. The front is scooped with a black beaded neckline that is cut to sit slightly off shoulder. The bead work is quite large and has rows of dangling beads so they move a little when you do. At the back the beaded edge extends down and dips just slightly. As the gown nears the floor is widens and the back half of the skirt has an extra panel of fabric to create a pretty sweep behind you. Two bows sits just on the hip for detailing. Excellent condition but please refer to detail note below.

The gown is fully lined in a black silk and closes with a back painted metal zipper. At some point the mid-section dart seams have been let out and there are slight lines on either side where it use to be taken in. I have chosen to leave it as found so the new owner can fit it back to where she needs it. The listed price take your potential alteration into consideration.
