SOLD Vintage 70s GEOFFREY BEENE Silk Full Skirted Dress Small bust 36
From the closet of a Rhode Island heiress who did most of her shopping at the Elizabeth Arden Boutique on Fifth Avenue in New York comes this vintage Geoffrey Beene Boutique dress that dates to 1973, the second year of his Boutique line. This dress is nearly identical in style to one that Beene designed for First Lady Pat Nixon, shown in the attached newspaper image from 1973. The dress is fashioned of a substantial silk in pink and black woven checks. The collar and cuffs are of solid black satin. The dress closes with a center front invisible zipper that has black decorative buttons alongside it, so it looks like the dress closes with buttons. A black silk satin bow snaps closed at the collar. The full skirt has deep pleats at the center front and back and at the sides. The original patent belt is included.
