Bill Tice Gold Lurex Plunge Neck Belted Maxi Dress, 1980s
New York designer Bill Tice is acclaimed for his thoughtful and dramatic designs for lingerie and casual wear. His work exuded such an elegance that Women’s Wear Daily described his loungewear as “not for lounging only”. Having worked for prominent names at the time such as Swirl and Malcolm Starr, Tice’s penchant for versatile looks allowed him to revolutionize the loungewear market into an area of high-fashion.
Showcasing this facet of Tice’s skill, this early 1980s robe dress is done in a lustrous gold lurex. A plunging V-neckline complements the gentle slopes of the dolman sleeves. From the waist, the dress sparkles down to an ankle-length hem with a sexy side slit on the left.
An attached quilted sash belt defines the waist shaping the dress beautifully along the back and across the bust line. This stunning dress is sure to make a splash as the perfect party dress option. This Bill Tice dress is also highly sought after as it can be seen as worn by Mary Kate Olsen for a 2007 red carpet event.
