1980s Couture Silver Beaded Paint Splatter Full Skirt Gown
A spectacular beaded evening gown from the 1980’s, designed by Ann Lawrence, renowned particularly for her high end evening wear. The skirt is textured in a distinctive sweeping pattern, creating a similar effect as if it was finely quilted, catching light nicely, and made further distinctive with hand painted silver metallic splatters throughout. The fabric of the skirt is fairly stiff though soft to the touch, while the pleated texture creates an even fuller effect. This extends all the way up around the sweetheart bust. Above the bust and on the long sleeves is sheer chiffon, generously embellished with hundreds of small silver sequins and beads sewn in a vertical pattern. Around the neck, sleeve cuffs and bust, the embellishments are not vertical but follow the seams, accenting the shape of the design. Features a back zipper enclosure. The Ann Lawrence label is missing; please contact me in case of any doubts on its authenticity.
