This pleated velvet cocktail purse is a proud addition to the Mooshi collection of vintage inspired handmade accessories. It was a joy to make from the remnant of velvet fabric I had purchased as a fashion student at technical college over 20 years ago.
The purse features an organza ribbon rose in a shade of that famous “Tiffany blue” trademarked by Tiffany & Co in New York. Inside is a pleated turquoise silk satin lining which looks stunning against the midnight black velvet.
The handle and purse opening are constructed with wire and feature a band of French sequin braid made in the 1940’s. At the front is a splash of glass beads and Swarovski crystals for a little sparkle. Nothing too dramatic but enough to set off this glamorous little evening piece.
This purse is the perfect accessory for that little black cocktail dress needing a lift of Tiffany blue and vintage trim on an elegant evening out to the opera, theater or just dinner. A glamour accessory carried in your hands or on the arm!
