This is a beautiful caftan worn once for the Met Gala by a New York designer in the 1960's. This caftan is soft polished creamy colored material that measures 58" long 16" across the shoulders and a grand 44"
wide with the bat wing arms extended away from the body. The neckline buttoned with tiny gold buttons 12" from the top to bottom. The caftan is highly decorated at the collar across the front and back, the cuff and a lesser decoration at the bottom of the gown. This decoration is golden bullion thread. It is very detailed and intricate in design, made by a craftsman.
Since the caftan is popular in many cultures and was also a designer passion in the Hippie 1960's I am not sure where it came from originally. The designer I bought it from kept it wrapped in tissue in a clean environment with no food, cigarette, perfume or animal smells.
I bought it because I imagined I would wear it but I know it is just the magpie in me. I can't resist a shiny object.
It should go to a woman with great sophistication who attends many gala events and wants to look like a queen.
The condition is very good to near mint and has no label.
