'Orleans,' an elegant 1940s style in glamourous gold lamé silk georgette.
A fitted bodice with plunge V neck and gathered detail at shoulders and bust.
Above the elbow sleeves are pleated into the shoulder, which has some light wadding to give that pronounced 1940s shoulder line.
The fluid skirt is softly eased into a feature flat panel at the centre front, and extends into a small extension that just rests on the ground.
The dress closes at the side with a row of little silk lamé covered highball buttons and rouleau loops. It is fully lined in oyster silk satin.
This is a really beautiful design, and a future heirloom piece. It has been tried on a few times, and has been used in a photo-shoot, but it is in immaculate condition (these really do not affect the gorgeousness of the gown). This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
Owing to the unique custom made nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the standard UK size 8 mannequin on which the dress is shown, with any excess room indicated.
