Boho Flamenco Dress Tiered Multicolor Abstract print Small One-of-A-Kind
This fabulous Flamenco Dress is from the estate of an Internationally famous Flamenco Dancer- Dolores Fernandez This estate sale held in Los Angeles, Ca.Dolores Fernandez owned the La Cana restaurent in Los Angeles where she performed and also taught flamenco dance. At that estate sale We met two of her grandaughters which was a delightful pleasant surprise.
If you google, search her name you will find here history.. She owned a restaurant La Cana which also has a lot of history in Los Angeles.
A One-of-A-kind. . It features a high waist - form fitting to below the hips it appears. The neckline has black drawstring to pull the neck high or lower. Long sleeves that have navy cuff and black metal snap closure.
The long sleeves have a contrasting wrist band and is hand sewn. A row of ruffles begin below the beautiful orange piping about hip height it seems and then one wide ruffled at the bottom. The ruffles have a dark navy edging that is part of the material. The first ruffle is separated from the gorgeous print top by an orange piping fabric. The first ruffle drops 14 inches. Under that the fabric is the same print as the top portion and extends down 13- 13.5 inches.The material is very light weight and fine. I t mostly likely could be silk or a very fine cotton gauze? This is such a dynamite dress and so disappointing it does not fit me! This is a custom made One-of-A-Kind dress and thus is no marked with a make/designer name, size or fabric content. Most likely it was worn in one of her performances. <br>.
This dress is from an estate among many other items and perhaps from the 40s prior to the 80s as she no longer performed after the mid 80s. I am not certain what the material is. It could be a blend of silk , fine linen and or cotton. Very lovely fabric and could be worn many seasons. <br>
Wonderful colors. The top is soft purple (not lavender)and white . The sleeves have the same but also the rainbow of colors that are in the ruffles! Aqua, reds, white black, purple - a fabulous color scheme. If you need any other measurements or have questions please ask.
