Deadstock designer blue 1980’s gown by Alyce Designs

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Combining 1980’s  love for asymmetry and royal blue, this deadstock gown by Alyce Designs is in a timeless empire cut with a sheer, diaphanous overlay of what could be called “raining roses”.   The flower motif adds tons of visual interest and glitz for the gown’s intended purpose as formalwear.  As with many of the “true” hues, royal blue looks good with several skin tones and hair colors.    Most of all, this is a unique piece and has never been owned before!  Click here for more views and sizing information.

 

1980’s designer princess gown in burgundy velvet

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

As splendid as it is luxurious, this never-worn and deadstock 1980’s gown by Alyce Designs of Chicago was originally sent to a Saks (as in Saks Fifth Avenue) sample sale.   The basic form is a drop-waist formal dress with puffed sleeves, sweetheart neckline, and tea-length hem:  quintessential mid-eighties.  The real beauty is in the use of fabric:  A soft velvet in a burgundy-wine color, expertly gathered down the front, at the drop waist, and best of all, at the sleeves.  The visual effect makes a lasting impression, and it likely is compounded when worn and walked in.  Click here for more sizing and views!
