We think this vintage 1960's black velvet Geoffrey Beene dress is simply perfect! We are huge fans of Mr. Beene (some might even call us obsessed) and we grab his pieces whenever we find them! Known for his talent for mixing textiles and materials, this dress is a beautiful example of Beene's expertise. The body of the dress is in a luxe black velvet with an empire waist, defined by a black satin ribbon that connects in back with a snap. The velvet continues to where short sleeves would end, and is finished with a satin ribbon and bow. The rest of the sleeve is bell shaped in a crisp white lace. The dress has a mock turtleneck with the same black satin ribbon and it closes in the back with a center hidden zipper and 2 hooks and eyes at the base of the neck. And guess what? There are pockets! The dress is fully lined and tailored beautifully. We estimate this to fit a modern day size 2/4 but please refer to the measurements for the best fit information! 

If you are collectors of Geoffrey Beene, this is a great one to add to your collection!

CONDITION:  Excellent, minimal signs of wear.
