Ladies, be prepared for something a bit special. This is a spectacular, rare, original vintage 1920s black beaded flapper dress. Flappers need no introduction but were famous for their mischievous behaviour and absolute commitment to the new fashion that was sweeping the globe. A more androgynous look was key so waistlines dropped and dresses were loose to allow for the dance crazes that were taking hold. Vintage flapper dresses were often excessively embellished with beads and sequins making them both eye-catching but incredibly heavy garments to wear. This is a stunning example of both the cut and the decoration common to such a dress. Just look at the intricate detailing of the beading and the sheer panelling sections which were considered very controversial at the time. This is a wonderfully historic dress but it also pretty fabulous to wear! Go flapper and team with a pearl necklace and a sequined hairband or bring your twenties a modern twist by teaming with studded ankle boots and a bold bright clutch. However you wear this fabulous dress you really will look one in a million.
This is an original 1920s flapper dress in black sheer fabric with full black glass bead and sequin detailing to whole dress. The dress is straight cut with frilled hem which is longer at the back and features decorative drop sequined fringing with contrasting sheer sectioning adding further interest to the design. This flapper dress has wide shoulder straps and a high, wide round neck. This dress is very heavy to wear and should be treated very carefully as both the beading and fabric is delicate (as would you be at nearly 100 years old!). This dress is made from sheer fabric with glass and sequin decoration. This dress should be handled with care and only cleaned by a specialist.
This dress measures Bust 36, Hips 36; waist 36" and length 39" is therefore a UK size 12 but will fit a 8-12.
Condition: Very good condition with only a few areas where the beaded has minor shedding. This is not noticeable when worn.
