John Cavanagh 1960s Velvet Tartan Party Dress UK Size 8

Hurry! Only 1 available
+ -


This charming John Cavanagh 1960s velvet party dress is a fine representation of a designer renowned for his universal sense of chic and elegant tailoring with it's wonderful purity of line. The black velvet bodice has beautiful definition at the waist and is silk lined with hand finished stitching, a scoop neckline and capped sleeves. The luxurious tartan style printed velvet skirt is in black, olive green, and deep purple with a gold thread check motif. Soft folding pleats below the waistband create pleasant movement in the thick fabric which finishes at the mid calf. There is a central zip fasting at the reverse. This piece is in very good condition with some gentle fading around the hemline. We have enhanced this as it is very difficult to see in certain lights and would not be noticeable when worn. Examples of John Cavanagh's work are difficult to find - he was a celebrated London couturier and designed two royal wedding dresses. Would best suit US size 4, UK size 8. - Black
