Stunning 1980s Bruce Oldfield Silk Gown & Shawl

An absolutely stunning gown in every way, this Oldfield silk gown is just unbelievable. Bruce Oldfield is of course best known for dressing Lady Diana but has dressed countless other celebrities and women of influence. This dramatic and beautiful gown is made of a high quality silk chiffon that has been screened with a beautiful floral print that absolutely pops off the black backdrop. The matching shawl or scarf is made of the same fabric and is incredibly long making it a dramatic counterpart to the simple, but perfect gown. The bust of the gown is shaped and hand gathered to fit and mold to the bust. From there the skirt flows tot eh floor in a cascade of bias cut silk that is as light as air. There are yards of fabric in it so with every move the effect of the fabric swirling around you is wonderful. Really a beautiful gown in every way! Excellent, looks like new off the showroom floor condition.

The bodice is lined in a black silky rayon and the skirt in black silk chiffon. Light boning through the bodice. It closes with a hidden set back zipper.
