Detailed Description

The design is a simple slip dress but the embellishment and detailing is what makes it special. The hand stitching is of an impressive calibre and overall the quality of the garment is the best we have seen in it's genre.

Back in the 1920s the uncovering of the secrets of the pyramids and the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen captured the imagination of a generation. The commencement of a flight service from London and Paris in the early twenties only served to heighten the attraction. Modern travel was adventurous and glamourous and Egypt was mysterious and exciting.

Dare to be different too in this bold and stylish 1920s dress. In a time that also saw liberating leaps in personal freedoms, a fashion revoloution and a sensual awakening amongst women it's little wonder that Cleopatra was a symbolic figure and Egyptian themes became a popular theme for parties of the age.

The Cleopatra 1920s dress features a bold motif in front and art nouveau swirls along the hem but apart from that is relatively simple. The dress is sheer so you will certainly want a slip to protect your modesty. We recommend our 1920s Under Dresses if you don't already have something suitable.
