1990s Fine Bead & Sequin Valentino Dress

This couture quality constructed cocktail dress that it is elaborately beaded and sequined by hand. The color is a pale silver grey and a fine silk net is set over an interior nude lining. This has then been shaped around the hips by gathered stripes of net that are connected by rows of crossed bead work. Near the hem these are attached only at the top of the row so that they create little flares of net on the last three layers. The top is stunning with flowers created out of tiny beads and sequins. It is all suspended by delicate little sequin encrusted straps! Really exceptional and very beautiful Excellent condition

Fully lined in a nude silk crepe that is completely hand set. Closes with a side set, hidden zipper. A teeny bit of the seed beads are missing on one strap. The coor is best shown in the label picture but it is a tad softer in real life. Hard to capture but very beautiful!
