1980s Bright Sequin Encrusted Multi Color Dress

This is such a great dress! It is completely covered in glossy sequins so densely spaced that the sit overlapping each other. The entire surface is covered in sequins with a black base and abstract shapes in bight colors worked through. I love the pops of almost neon color with the yellow and orange strips. The edges of each pattern and the neck and sleeves are finishes with rows of gold seed beads. It has a high neck and the sleeves are cut short but really wide so sit in an interesting way once on. It skims over the body past the hips to just above the knee. Fabulous and fun. I suspect it is a Swee Lo but it only has its Neiman Marcus tag left. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silly rayon and closes with a back zipper. I see no areas of missing sequins.

Bust: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
