Exquisite late 1960's sparkling sequin evening gown by the famous "Mr. Blackwell" custom label. Blackwell carefully placed black, silver and ebony sequins on silk-net in a remarkable abstract fish-scale scalloped pattern. This gives the garment so much movement and interest. I adore the alluring bodice with its stand collar and dramatic kimono angel-sleeves. The seductive back cut-out design finishes this masterpiece off with the perfect "femme fatale" vibe. 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 the room." That statement is very true when one looks at this stunning garment. So breathtaking and unique!
