1960s Wyndale Metallic Brocade Maxi Dress
This exceptionally crafted dress by British designer Wyndale was created in the late 1960s. Its black bodice features long sleeves with deep dramatic cuffs and 4 fabric-covered buttons. Adding to the luxurious look, the skirt is adorned with a captivating brocade pattern in luxurious metallic platinum, gold, and rose gold hues. A matching fold-over collar increases the drama, while the intricate aztec sun pattern on the brocade belt serves as the ultimate finishing touch. The skirt is lined, and an internal facing under the collar provides further detail. It is closed with a lapped back zipper and a hook and eye fastening. A standout statement piece for all the right reasons! Elegant yet eyecatching.
Excellent condition, near immaculate, no issues or flaws of note. Looks to be rarely, if ever, worn.
