Edwardian Sequin & Silk Couture Dress
My photos do nothing to convey how special this dress is. It looks so shockingly modern and fresh that it will literally blow you over when you see it in person and realize this date to somewhere in the very very early twenties or late teens! The workmanship is extraordinary - it really and truly is a couture level piece and I would not be surprised to learn that some aficionado spots it for what it really is and it turns out to be a rare Chanel or Lavin or something on that level. The sequin work is amazing and the design has an almost tiger stripe feel to it in the way the sleeves and sides are partially striped. All those sequins have been applied in tight rows and form a beautiful contrast to the silk netting. The elongated triangles run across each sleeve and down each side where they eventually meet and circle the hem of the skirt. The bodice has a sequin overlay that is weighted to hang perfectly. Truly amazing - if you love it in the pictures you will be extraordinarily happy when it arrives. It is strong and would be wearable with care though truly this is also a piece meant fot a collectors and should be considers a true work of art.
