This is the dress you can wear to every party this season! Or host a house party so you can just wear it at home!
Impeccable like new 1970s hostess gown/maxi dress. Slightly empire waistline on a solid black velvet bodice with scoop neck. Long sleeves in black velvet that taper to the wrist and close with zippers (see photo). The Empire waist embellished with large gold tone door knocker rings that are outta this world cool. The skirt is made of an oversized quilted paisley in tones of red, green gold and blue. Gold tone beads outline every paisley on the skirt. To top it all off, the hemline is further embellished with another row of that killer gold tone door knocker trim! The dress has a long back zipper closure.
This dress is in such beautiful condition and so of the moment that is was hard to grasp that it actually dates to the 1960s!
Herbert Kasper joined Leslie Fay in 1965 and designed for Joan Leslie, a division of Leslie Fay. Kasper previously worked with Jacques Fath, Christian Dior, and Marcel Rochas, giving this dress some awesome DNA!
