Meet Onyx, she is a rare, epic and truly unusual quilted velvet late 60s early 70s dream dress, perfectly adorned in gold fringe trims. This is of course one of my favourites from today, I just LOVE black velvet, and quilted black velvet even more so! She has a beaut shape with high collar, nipped in waist and epic sleeves and will look even more fabulous when worn!
This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12
Bust - up to 40"
Waist - 32"
Length - 54"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Onyx has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. A couple of tiny sewn up mends, one to collar edge at the back side and one near the shoulder. These are really tiny and I bet if I didn't mention them they would have went unnoticed.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
