This majestic ensemble captures the essence of an Autumn masquerade, with rich delustered satin printed with an intricate amber filigree and floating Autumn leaves. The corset features a front busk, back modesty panel and pale amber lacing.
The skirt is a glorious confection of layers. Masses of black tulle give a classic ballgown shape, which is draped with a full and flowing underskirt of amber silk. The overskirt is a soft and heavy wrap of black satin with a gentle sheen, embellished with a scalloped hem and a drift of printed Autumn leaves. Gentle drapes and pennants of amber chiffon and gold silk form the bustle and the matching detached sleeves.
