Offered for sale is this eye-catching, sleeveless black evening gown lavishly embellished with tiny gold sequins, designed by Michael Maiello (1948-1989) for Pat Richards. The gown has a lovely scooped neckline with soft draping and the back has a scooped-out back lower than the front neckline also with ample draping treatment. The gown has a dropped waist line and is fitted around the hips. The tiny gold sequins are concentrated around the hip line creating a thick band. The skirt falls straight from the hips and the tiny sequins are interspersed sparingly and then concentrated again at the gown's hem line. The gown must be slipped over one's head to be worn. It measures 41" around the bust line and 30" around the hip line. The gown is in excellent vintage condition.
