Sensational Vintage Saks Fifth Avenue Sequin Dress, 1990s
Fifth Avenue is the mecca for high fashion in the US. Named for this iconic location, Saks Fifth Avenue has been a major retail contended for over a century and has become widely known for their offerings of coveted designer fashions.
This beautifully made ’90s dress is of exceptional quality, and is hand embroidered with beads and sequins. It features geometric patterns in iridescent shades of pink, mauve, gold, lavender, white, forest green, bright blue, and turquoise, elevating this dress into a glimmering work of art.
The sleeveless bodice begins with a deep scoop neck and wide straps, giving it more of a casual feel which contrasts nicely with the intricate beadwork and sequins. The zig-zag nature of the pattern is set across the torso and thighs, creating a slimming effect, while the unusual abstract patterns of stripes, circles, and triangles give the eye something new to appreciate at each angle.
Bust: 3-34 inches
Waist: 27-8 inches

A linear band of blue sequin circles at the bottom of the skirt brings the dress to a finish while a bordering stipe of wine-colored sequins at the hem compliments the wine-colored sequins that frame the neckline, pulling the dress together visually.

The designer label is removed, but the Saks label is present. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
