Black Silk Crepe Beaded Evening Dress

Black Silk Crepe Beaded Evening Dress , Mid 1970s

Bill Gibb

Designer:Bill Gibb
New Pitsligo, Scotland, 1943 - 1988

silk crepe, crystal, plastic and beading

A full-length black silk crepe beaded evening dress featuring a daringly deep V-neck and high split up the side of the skirt.

The dress features two types of beadwork, which is typical of Bill Gibb. He didn't feel restricted when decorating his designs and often added layers of embellishment that is sometime contrasting. There is a band of black beaded edging around the V-neck ad all other edges of the dress. This is contrasted with a heavily beaded and sequinned band around the waist, which has an ethnic feel.
