Meet Renaissance, she is a STUNNING and HOLY GRAIL RARE late 70s dream gown by Frank Usher, made from a chiffon with lining. This dress is my absolute favourite party gown I have ever sourced, the funny thing is, back in 2019 I sourced and sold a version of this dress, without doing her any proper justice, and it has haunted me ever since. She has an absolutely insane showstopping silhouette, with tiered skirt, ruffle neckline, beautiful sleeves and low cut boned bodice. Her fabric and print are beyond dreamy, with a foiled style floral rococo frame print in gold on a black base tone. When worn, this dress just looks remarkable, and like all of Frank Ushers earlier pieces, she is of couture like quality. I really hope this beauty heads to an epic home, I know the minute she is unpacked it will be love at first sight..
This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small 12 - her bodice is supposed to be fitted.
Bust - up to 36"
Waist - 29"
Length - 60" - this will come up shorter a few inches when worn, her shoulders are elasticated meaning when hung on the hanger she does measure longer.
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Renaissance has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry clean only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.
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.
