1980s One of a Kind Anthony Ferrara Gold Bead Bustier

This is such a treat to have in the shop. My client purchased this directly from Anthonly's granddaughter and I can supply provenance if the buyer wishes it. It is an amazing one-of-a-kind piece made that was a runway sample that he made by hand. It is made of a gold pleated nylon backed with a corset bodice inside so you get support. It simple hooks into place at the back and once on leaves the back exposed. The front is a wild and sexy combination if swirling, ruffle edges fabric and hand placed and sewn pearls and large pink cabochon feeling beads. The little spiked dangling beads finish it off perfectly! Excellent condition

Inner corset as shown. Hooks to close with two rows to adjust the size around the waist. It has some stretch so we have provided the measurements flat and without it being stretched and then a set of measurements wt maximum, comfortable stretch. No label but provenance provided upon request.
