1980s Purple Velvet & Taffeta Prom/ Party Dress, Floral Sparkle Bodice, Bust 36

1980s Purple Velvet & Taffeta Prom/ Party Dress, Floral Sparkle Bodice, Bust 36

What a dress! This has all of the late 80s details we love, from the major puffed sleeves to an asymmetrical waistline. The bodice is a deep plum velvet, encrusted with sparkles that design a floral motif. It has a square neckline and a deep V back. The skirt is a lustrous purple taffeta, and is lined with a crinoline skirt. It zips up at the centre back. 

Perfect for an 80s themed prom party!

Very similar to a Laura Ashley dress from a 1990 catalogue, a photo of which is included. 

We have a second version of this dress available in another size here
