Created in a time of true decadence, the Gigi Beaded Silk Sheath Dress is reminiscent of the 1920s flapper era that inspired it. Firstly the silk georgette base cloth was hand screen printed with subtle grey dots, before the beadwork began. Combining luminescent Japanese glass beads, stitch by stitch the stylized blooms and leaves were created - deriving their influence from the Deco period. There is a gorgeous weight to this piece as it drips with beads. This is surely one of the most collectable pieces from the archive - a true treasure that stands the test of time.
