1970s Mary McFadden Couture Silk Gown

Gorgeous, late seventies, early eighties, Mary Mcfadden Couture gown incorporating her signature pleat technique in the fabric. Her couture line is the best examples of this fabrication - she used silks and high end finishes and the gowns where constructed and finished by hand. The color is a ice blue - as pale as can be and thick bands of beading and large rhinestones encircle the waist and criss coss over the bodice giving it a beautiful Grecian feel! The bodice is lined in tissue silk and the gown feels like a dream on. A really beautiful example of her work and sure to continue to increase in value since it is her couture line! Excellent condition!
