Evening dress, 1950s
The fabric of this dress is made from lavish gold brocade. The draping at the hip accentuates the rich pattern and colour.

Going out in the fifties required good co-ordination and an eye for detail as no outfit was complete without matching handbag, gloves, shoes and even umbrella.
