BOB MACKIE Vintage Fringed Beaded Flapper Style Evening Dress w/ Open Back Size XS-S

This uberglamorous vintage Bob Mackie evening dress from c. 1991 is crafted from a fine black mesh that is intricately adorned with sparkling sequins, faceted beads and bugle beads, all black with a silvery sheen. Sexy cut with an open back and an ultrashort skirt with a scalloped hem and beaded fringes. Hook and eye closure at the back of the neck and asymmetrical zipper at the back of the dress. The dress has lightly padded cups and is lined in a first class quality nude silk. It has substantial weight due to the thousands and thousands of small glass beads and is largely done by hand.

US designer Bob Mackie was best known for dressing high-profile celebrities. He created spectacular on-stage and red carpet pieces for the likes as Tina Turner, Diana Ross and Whitney Houston as well as Cher‘s unforgettable awards outfits.
