ARCHIVE - 1960s Bright Feather Print and Gold Lame Dress

£0.00 Sold out
Original 1960s A-line dress by Global in a cheerful colour palette of ochre yellow, orange, red and green, complete with gold lame detail. It has a shallow V-neck to both front and back, with wide shoulder straps and a rear central zip, concealed with a placket and secured with a hook and eye closure. The bust has an inverted 'V' shaped detail and the skirt flares from the waist creating a flattering and feminine silhouette. The fabric is a very lightweight and high quality mesh, printed with brushstroke like patterns which resemble feathers. It is accented in gold lame threads which gives the dress a lovely luminosity. The dress is lined throughout with a peach coloured silky material, making it cool and comfortable for the wearer.

A versatile piece which can be worn as a day dress or as a bright addition to a party wardrobe. The inside label reads 'Made in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong'. Although labelled a UK14, due to the nature of vintage sizing, we feel that it would best fit closer to a modern size 10-12 UK, or 6-8 US. The dress is in fabulous vintage condition with no marks or flaws to note.

Will you set anything aside for me before I come?

We are happy to find anything you may be interested in from our website - please let us know a week in advance. 

We also have an extensive offline collection. If you let us know your size, style, favourite colour to wear and perhaps your budget, we can browse through our archive in advance of your appointment. 

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Clients may wish to bring modern shapewear when trying on garments from certain eras, especially the 1950s. Vintage clothing was often worn with undergarments that shaped the waist and as such is tailored for them.

We have a huge variety of slip dresses and petticoats to complete your look; many of which are also for sale.

You may also wish to bring your favourite footwear. We often find a classic pair of nude shoes work well when trying on, or a pair in gold or silver.

Do you have a price range?

Many of our lower-priced pieces (under £150) are not available to buy online. Our prices range from £80 - £600 for separates. Dresses start at around £150 and go up to £2,500 for the very best antique pieces and designer vintage. Our bridalwear ranges from £300 - £3,000.
