1970s Metal Tip Fringe Maxi Dress

The first thing that strikes you with this dress is the sound - it actually makes a beautiful tinkling sound as the metal tips of the fringed areas move and hit each other! Its quite pretty and really unusual too! It is made of a very very fine silk jersey. This came out of the same estate that the Tiktiner's came out of and I would suspect that this is also from that label - it is made to the same high quality and the fabric is similar. The bright print is fabulous but of course it is the fringe sleeves with their metal tips that steal the show! The belt has a fringe detail with the same metal tip treatment! Really unique and wonderful! Excellent condition!

The top is unlined and skirt lined in a black rayon. It closes with a back hidden set zipper. The belt presents well but the backing is separating from the front in some spots- it closes with velcro strips.
