c1980s Hand Painted Zandra Rhodes Gown

This stunning and dramatic black and gold, hand painted gown by Zandra Rhodes is deliciously decadent in every way. The bodice is made of a  silk with a velvet fused floral pattern highlighted with glitter. The sleeves take this a step further with the pattern set on net so you get glimpses of skin through. The top of the bodice and waist are highlighted by little silk satin rosettes. The shoulders are left bare which perfectly off sets the fullness of that amazing skirt. That skirt is amazing with Zandra's signature design running over its surface in gold, all completely hand painted. It has its own built ion layers under the exterior so the fullness you see is built in and nothing extra has been added. A row of gold toned buttons run down the front to finish. It is just extraordinary and very special and over the top in the best possible way! Excellent, appears unworn condition!

Fully lined in a black rayon and closes with a back hidden set zipper. The bodice is formed and boned on the interior and the skirt has an additional layer of tulle between the lining and the outer skirt.
