Mr. Blackwell, known the world over for his infamous "worst dressed" list, is a native New Yorker who began his career in clothing production in 1958. His dresses are highly desirable vintage pieces known for their iconic shapes, exaggerated styling and bold fabrics. The demand for Mr. Blackwell's quintessential glamorous styles continues to rise. Don't miss your opportunity to own a piece of iconic fashion history.
This particular piece is an extraordinary example of the 1950s to 1960s transitional style holding true to the ultra-feminine lines of the earlier fifties silhouettes while starting to bring bolder, more eye-catching patterns and accents to modernize the pieces. This silk multi-colored dress with accompanying brooch and shoulder fall is an absolute stunner in print and in person. With no visible damage and a killer vintage construction, this piece is a must have for any vintage collector and especially anyone with a penchant for Blackwell's dramatic sensual flair. The dress is lined with an off-white rayon fabric. Though there are some discolorations on the lining, there is no visible discoloration on the outside of the dress. The upper left shoulder is accented with a brooch which was originally a part of the dress design. The brooch, which measures 2 inches in diameter, sits atop a gorgeous fabric flare and fall. Step out for an evening on the town, a cocktail party, or even a Hollywood premier in the amazing dress and you are sure to be the subject of much adulation. Fits a size: 2-4 (US)
