1960s Silver Paper Dress
Well you've read about them if you're a fan of Andy Warhol, and here's a RARE find. It's a silver paper dress from the 1960s. The paper dress captured the vibrant, youthful, optimism of 1960s America so precisely that the fashion press speculated about paper garments taking over the entire clothes market. The dresses were whimsical, often featuring eye-catching pop art-like patterns, shapes for the customer to color or cut to length. They were just one of many newly disposable items – like cutlery, plates, pens, lighters and razors – embraced by consumers. This one is silver and backed by white paper. The straps tie to adjust and you just pull it over your head, no need for zippers or buttons. It is an A shape. The label reads, "Design by Beau Monde. Stitchcraft , Passaic, NJ" It's in excellent vintage condition. There's discoloration on the collar and hem inside from being stored, but not noticeable when worn. The bust measures 39in, waist 44in. This is an authentic one of a kind vintage piece in wearable condition, that has been cleaned and repaired (if necessary). Flaws will be noted, but please ask any questions you may have as this is a FINAL SALE garment and cannot be returned. All items are measured flat the same way we measure our reproduction items. The maximum measurement is listed. Most vintage fabrics do no have stretch, so please take into consideration when looking at size.
