This is a very nice quality fully sequined dress, most likely dating to the 1980s. The sequins are made in a gunmetal green color and surrounded by gold/brass colored beads. The neckline and cuffs are beaded with faceted gold toned beads that I believe are plastic based. The sleeves are made in a full style with some drape and the interior of the dress is lined in green rayon. It does up the back with a nylon zipper.
Label: Fait Specialement Pour Ingrid CA 05535. Ingrid is the brand name used by Haut La La, a Montreal based boutique that imports high fashion under their own private label. I’ve had other Ingrid garments previously and they are always of excellent quality - the manufacturer of this dress probably produced known designer labels.
Size: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into account:
Sleeves: 29” from the neckline to the cuff
Bust: 37” around, but should be slightly loose
Waist: 30" around, meant to fall loosely
Length: 38" overall, measured lying flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, missing sequins or stains - this piece looks like it saw little use and was well cared for over the years.
This is a striking dress - wonderful piece to wear under bright lights!
