1970s Bill Blass Sequin Maxi Dress

Lovely Bill Blass, late seventies full length dress that is in a brilliant red with lots of vivid flowers splashed over it. This pretty base is then covered entirely in clear sequins so that the pattern underneath is not hidden but given an extra layer of wow factor! The entire gown gleams and glistens in the light and the effect is quite startling and beautiful. Love the long, lean silhouette and the way the hem is cut with a slight flare. Immaculately constructed and shockingly light and easy to wear! Excellent condition

Lined in red silk chiffon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each cuff has a zipper as well. Perhaps the very occasional sequin missing but no bare spots or issues.
