Posh Girl Vintage

1950's Mr. Blackwell Black Bow Evening Dress

Mr. Blackwell designed some of the most beautiful vintage clothing during his time. He's in our top 10 list of favorite clothing designers. This vintage designer dress from the late 50's is no exception. A classic form fitting hour glass shape with 2 very big silk bows at the bottom. Fully lined, metal zipper in the back, darts, lightweight jet black wool fabric with the finest silk for the bows. So rare to find a large vintage size. Mr. Blackwell sure had great style!

Condition Details: At 1st look it looks new. LOOKS UNWORN. Zipper has no wear on it at all.  No stains. Very black, no fading. The only flaws are 4 very small pinholes on the top of left shoulder strap and two tiny 2 stitch repair in the front on the right hip (see photo). There are also a few tiny repairs on the skirt but they get covered up in the folds of the skirt. In no way do these affect the wearing of it. Price reflects flaws. I took off $100.00.
