Original 1950s 50s Black Satin Evening Dress Hostess Gown With Lurex Silver Embroidered Leaves By Harvey Nichols
This elegant dress was made from a beautiful quality satin in the 1940s. The decadent satin is embroidered with silver lurex in a bold and contrasting leaf pattern. The keyhole neckline is highlighted with three sparkly lucite buttons at the bodice. There is a long zipper down the centre of the dress from the waist to the hem and small pockets at the hip. Inside, the garment is lined in satin and has a maker’s label for Harvey Nichols of Knightsbridge. This garment would have originally been a hostess gown, perfect for luxuriating around your home in, but it would look equally stunning worn as an evening dress.
Bust: 38” (max 40”)
Length: 57 1/2”
The dress is in very good condition, it does have some very light fraying to the hem and some faint barely noticeable marks as pictured. The original zipper has been replaced with a modern plastic one at some point.
