An absolutely stunning vintage evening dress from the 50s by high quality British label, John Selby. This incredibly well constructed dress has a built in stiffened underskirt and a tulle lining to add volume to the incredibly full skirt, which contrasts beautifully with the boned bodice and fitted waist to create a flattering hourglass silhouette. At the front a panel drapes, with the skirt flaring out at either side, making a unique shape with two bows adding a playful touch at each hip. In a red and gold satin brocade / jacquard fabric. Perfect for a glamorous party or formal evening / red carpet event.
