This vintage original satin dress is at least 70 years young and in fantastic condition. Luxe vintage satin is so slinky and exudes decadence when worn. This fabric is always a classic style winner.
The tulip shape of this wiggle dress flatters the body in all the right places. Take her to an event and you are sure to be the belle of the ball!
While this wonderful piece does not have any markings to suggest it is a Mary Quant piece, if you have seen the official Mary Quant exhibition you will see there is an decidedly similar piece indicative of the era in the collection (pictured image taken at exhibition in Auckland 2022).
