1980s Bruce Oldfield Red & Gold Silk Gown

Bruce Oldfield is of course best known for dressing Lady Diana but has dressed countless other celebrity and women of influence. This is a stunning and dramatic gown made of a red silk and topped with a golf foil lame inset. The inset dramatically shaped and molds the body and I love how it is worked right through the front and back. Stunning and in excellent condition.

Lined in tissue silk through the bodice only. Closes with a series of hook & eye and snaps hidden at one top shoulder seam and a side zipper. Ships professionally dry cleaned.
