Beaded silk brocade gown. A one-shoulder evening ensemble in pure silk brocade and douppioni, with hand-beading. The skirt, in a gleaming silver-taupe silk brocade, has side slip pockets, concealed side zip, and ornate hand-beaded waist band. The asymmetric one-shouldered top in taupe douppioni is cropped to expose the beaded waist. Angled necklines, front and back, are joined at the shoulder with a bead-encrusted bow.
