Yvonne of Paris was one of the smaller elite couture houses operating during the art-deco era. This breathtaking garment, all hand-stitched, is fashioned with golden bugle beads on matching gold cotton-net and an inner cotton netting to help keep the stress off the exterior. The complex deco pattern formed from the sparkling beadwork is so opulent, I wouldn't be surprised if this dress was designed for a person of great importance. Original metallic lamé side sash still present. The dramatic asymmetric skirting really brings this gament to new levels. Couture collectors are often drawn initially to the brilliance of vintage textiles. The beautiful color, along with its flattering construction, makes this a Parisian rarity.
