Ornamental Gown with Gilded Floral Motifs
Avant Garde Gilded Sea Shell Couture
A recent addition to our wearable art series of embellished babydolls is a burgundy satin gown with gilded sea shells, wooden beads and apple seeds in the shape of floral motifs. Something a little avant garde for the 'dare to be different'!
Designed in the style of our beloved babydoll design, this dress is sleeveless, full length and has an embelllished yoke.
The hand painted silk yoke is embroidered with sea shells laid in floral motifs surrounded with ribbon embroidery and silk ribbon work petals. Around the neckline are tambour embroidered cupped sequins. At the base of the yoke is a pale mauve organza ribbon ruffle.
Burgundy organza bows accentuate the front and back of the yoke, and there's a matching pale mauve organza ribbon to tie around the waist.
More costume than couture, this dress could be mistaken for something avant garde. Dare to be different and wear this piece to dinner at a seaside resort.
Take a look at this piece in detail in our online boutique. It's definitely one of a kind, a little unusual and certain to attract attention at any occasion.
