Magnificent Victorian c.1900 Paris style Edwardian Evening Gown Repro Production worn in IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST


This is an especially wonderful and wearable Vintage English Victorian reproduction stage costume gown, coming straight from the collection of the world famous Oxford Playhouse Theatre (Oxford, UK). Their award winning theatrical costume company supplier ended its lease. They decided to sell their stock, so I purchased many gowns, which are just breathtaking in their uses of high quality fabrics, expert tailoring and often Victorian trims. Many of the gowns were used in famous plays such as The Importance of Being Earnest, Pygmallion Three sisters, and were often worn by world famous actresses such as Judy Dench and Patricia Healey. Often, these stunning gowns were rented out to the movie sets because of the expert tailoring and magnificent styling details by their prestigious designers. In many of the dresses, if there weren't something tipping me off toward the origin being a costume (and I didn't know where they came from), I'd almost swear they were the real deal-, the tailoring's THAT good- they spent the effort and made them utterly gorgeous- the very best. This is your chance to own the very finest of costumes- you don't want to miss this gown.

Sorry, no other photos available of this gown anymore. The body is made of a gray sill paisley brocade with a sweeping band of scarlet silk at the knees and corselet belt. The bodice insert and sleeve cuffs have inserts of black netting roses. The rear has a large scarlet bow. Hooks and eye closures.

Condition:

Mint Condition, definitely wearable- fabulous!
