SPECTACULAR VINTAGE 1980s VICTOR COSTA FROM I MAGNIN BLACK VELVET EVENING GOWN WITH FABULOUS GOLD METALLIC LACE

$ 899.99 $ 1,099.99

LAYAWAY AVAILABLE FOR THIS EVENING GOWN

This is one of the most beautiful vintage evening gowns that I have ever seen!
The evening gown is by Victor Costa from I Magnin so one know not only was the dress very expensive, it is high quality as well.  The label for Victor Costa is from the 1980s and is identical to the label on The Vintage Fashion Guild site and my thanks to them.

The lush velvet fabric is so soft on the evening gown and the bodice is encrusted with a huge sparkling gold metallic lace applique.  Unfortunately, I could not photograph the correct color of the lace applique but the gold shade is absolutely beautiful and sparkling which does not show in the photos.

The bodice is trimmed with not only the huge metallic lace applique but miniature braid around the top of the evening gown and it also encircles the entire waist.
Beautiful sweetheart neckline.  Completely lined with heavy smooth black satin with no exposed seams to rub again one's skin. Boning in the bodice, sides and back front to help keep the gown up and smooth looking.  Long zipper in back with the cutest tiniest hook and eye that I have ever seen. The dress fans out a bit at the bottom and is a bit longer which gives it a tiny bit of a "train.  Tag inside dress which states "Created with Pride in the USA".

Absolutely gorgeous and perfect for A Christmas party, New Year's Eve, mother of the bride or groom, a cruise, a Red Carpet event or Black Tie evening!

By: Victor Costa - I Magnin - Made in the U.S.A.

Care Instructions

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.

Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.

Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.

Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.

The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements. We hope you enjoy what you purchased but we know sometimes things do not fit quite as you would like or the color is wrong.  In that case, we do allow one exchange or a store credit on any item that you want. There are about 2,000 items in the store and more are being added all the time so you have a large selection to choose from.

You must email before returning an item so I can give you the information that you need to exchange the item.

International customer have 14 days to contact Midnight Glamour about returning an item if they should want to.  International customers may have to pay be additional customs and import taxes and there maybe unforeseen customs delays. The seller is not responsible for these delays nor for the custom charges as that is the international customer's obligation when purchasing an item outside your country.
