1960s NORMAN HARTNELL BLACK VELVET AND GOLD EMBROIDERY SKIRT (UK 6-8-10)
Vintage 1960s maxi skirt made with material from Norman Hartnell's atelier
This is an incredible find, this skirt was sourced from a seamstress who worked for the famous fashion designer Norman Hartnell in the 1950s and 1960s (he designed Queen Elizabeth's wedding dress). The seamstress who worked for him made this skirt from material from his design studio. It is a very high quality black velvet with gold embroidery throughout (possibly hand embroidered). It is a maxi skirt and perfect for winter and the trend for velvet that is fashion for 2016/17.
