Product Details

A rare 1990s vintage Bruce Oldfield silk & organza evening gown. In a black silk with peach silk organza details around the dress and at the top of the strapless bodice that are hand embroidered to give a trompe l'oiel effect of a sash going around the dress. A flattering, elegant hourglass silhouette that would be perfect for balls and glamorous formal events, is created by a long skirt that slowly flows out from the waist and a built in corset. This would have been custom made for a private client of Bruce Oldfield's and cost thousands of pounds to commission at the time, constructed by hand.
