1960s "Saks Fifth Avenue" Custom Silk Party Dress with Bell Sleeves
What an absolutely jaw-dropping piece!
Original early 1960s custom made pure silk party dress by “Saks Fifth Avenue” designer dress salon. This piece is so extremely well made, tailored to perfection. Gorgeous low scooped neckline, darted bodice, slight empire waist (not quite empire), huge bell sleeves that are to die for, nipped wasp waist, and extremely full tea length skirt with intricate pleating around the top. This fabric alone- wow. Cream and inky black silk with painted high realistic looking blood red with hot pink detailing roses. Vibrant chartreuse stems. Just simply amazing. This piece reminds me of Christian Dior, meets Cristobal Balenciaga, meets Alice in Wonderland, meets Beetlejuice. The ultimate fantasy dress.
