Fantastic early 1980s Studio 54 disco era evening/cocktail dress by Roots, with more than a nod to the elegant art deco styles of the 1930s.
Sparkling, shimmering boned bodice with fanned arcs of silver glitter. Narrow shoulder straps, fitted hips and contrasting flared bias cut black crepe-feel viscose mix hem.
The bodice is fully lined in acetate fabric, and the dress fastens with a nylon zip to the centre back.
In fab vintage shape - the bodice didn't quite fasten on our size 10 mannequin as you'll see in the rear photo, but it does do up fine at the back if you're the right size!
