Black Velvet Beaded Cocktail Dress
Brand Embers / Cinders Vintage
The perfect little black dress, a 50's vintage velvet beaded a-line cocktail dress with a flattering scoop neckline and oodles of shimmering black beadwork.
This is from a private collection of custom-made vintage party dresses.
It was worn once, and has hung in a garment bag for over 50 years. It is in amazing vintage condition. Dresses this lovely and in this good of condition are a rarity, truly.
This 50's cocktail dress is a sleeveless, tank style with a scoop-neck front. It is made out of a rich, sumptuous velvet fabric and features a fitted bodice and a-line skirt in a midi length.
Dress has impressively and beautifully applied black beading to the bust-line, down the front of the bodice and around to the back of the dress.
The beading is all still in tact; I see no missing or problem areas.
This is an absolutely stunning dress in excellent condition.
Metal back zipper closure. Dress is unlined.
