Paint splash lurex mini-dress

Subdued tones of grey and brown are offset by the flashed of bright orangey red and the glimmering lurex woven into the fabric. Labelled Doris Page Couture, this graphic printed lurex dress features bell sleeves, a high, pointed waistline and a daring length. The way the sleeves are bound and the thread and stitching in the hem indicates that this dress has been modified from the original to give it a new lease on life.
