Couture Allure just added this exotic silk dress to their shop today and I just had to talk about it. I've been on an extended 1920s fashion kick lately, so this naturally struck me. It is one of the most fabulous combinations of color and beading design I have seen. The ombre dyeing is stunning and the shift from light to dark is carried through in the beading as well. Brilliant. I see Japanese influence and early 20s, yes? I would bet French made, too. There are condition issues, but it is a one of a kind dress. Be sure to get over to Coutureallure.com and gaze at the rest of the photos.
