Meet Vermillion, she is a gorgeous rare 1970s Richard Shops gothic dream dress, beautifully crafted in thick corduroy with delicate chiffon style fabric to her yoke and sleeves. She has gorgeous lace and velvet trims, stunning billowing sleeves and the most beautiful rich thick corduroy fabric to her body. I just LOVE this dress, she is so victoriana and so gothic, and it truly is rare to find a vintage corduroy maxi dress. I hope she finds the best home..

The Vermillion has been freshly cleaned and is ready to wear. DRY CLEAN ONLY. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. Slight light colour run around her back zip and a few other tiny signs of wear, none of this is majorly noticeable and does not detract.
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.
