1970s Sparkle Diamante Peggy Lane Maxi Evening Gown
Effortlessly combining timeless and captivatingly chic, this Peggy Lane floor-length gown exudes a romantic Old Hollywood aura with its artfully constructed shoulder and bodice contours, culminating in a graceful crossover wrap effect.
Subtle lurex twinkles elegantly across the midnight-black fabric, while a shimmering assortment of diamond-like stones embellish the front neckline and shoulders, evoking 1930s glamour. Its eternally fashionable floor-length drape flowing from an inverted pleat near the waistband at the centre front and matching wide cumberband belt lend a beguiling masculine-femme resonance. This is a dress that will never go out of style!
The bodice is unlined, while the skirt is lined and there is a side zip fastening. The belt has a velcro fastening to the rear.
Very good condition. This arrived with us with a small hole in the front near the bottom of the dress in the lining and outer (we suspect a misplaced heel!), and has been expertly repaired by our in-house tailors. Otherwise in excellent condition.
