About This Piece
This is arguably one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen. A floor length open jacket in peach satin silk with a simple collar (and pockets!) features cuffs matching the gown it opens to reveal. Deep brown mink trim meets a hand beaded diamond pattern in peach glass beads, crystals, and pearls over the bodice of this empire waisted gown. A double layer of sheer silk cascades from the high waistline.
Styling This Piece
