Exquisite early 1960's leopard print silk chiffon cocktail dress from the famous "Mr. Blackwell" label. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; fully lined semi-sheer animal print chiffon with abstract roses in the same hue works in. The bodice has a seductive low-cut scoopneck with unique cape-style sleeves and cutest little back bows. The figure flattering pencil skirt silhouette is cut to skim over your curves. The New York Times in 1963 quoted a buyer from San Antonio as saying, "When Mr. Blackwell designs a dress, he keeps in mind how a woman wants to look across a room." That statement is very true when one looks at this stunning beauty. A timeless garment that is perfect for any modern event.
