Ancient Greece antiquities inspired draped dress in a stretch blue velvet with a hand embroidered leather collar. Inspired by the draped clothing of ancient Greece and the Chiton, this dress is hand draped around the body forming cascading pleats under the arms. The loose silhouette is secured at the neckline by the hand embroidered leather collar.
The embroidered collar is all hand stitched with metallic gold thread filling stitches embellished with Swarovski crystals, Japanese glass beads and a sequence of red and gold paillettes. Silk chenille crochet yarn completes the edge. The collar is secured with a pair of hooks at the back neck. The side drapes are secured to the body with a hand made elasticated waist stay worn close to the under-bustline.
A beautiful antiquities inspired dress. One-of-a-kind.
