Vintage Black Velvet Skirt Suit By Worth London. There are a few items that when you find them you instantly know, just from seeing a corner of the fabric, that they are going to make you tingle all over with excitement. This absolutely stunning rare and highly collectable Worth of London black velvet skirt suit is one of those pieces. Everything about this stunning velvet two piece set is perfect, including the subtle diamond pattern that runs through out both pieces. The cropped fitted jacket with ruffles neckline, corset tied style front with black cord and contrasting raw silk panel, I love how to the cord ties and hangs a beautiful detail. The jacket is fully lined with a metal zip fastening down the centre back and a single hook and eye fastening at the top. The skirt just as beautiful and well designed as the jacket is breathtaking. With its super high waist silhouette, it comes up to just under the bust with the bodice skirt (the part that is not seen and worn under the top) made out of the same raw silk style fabric that can be seen on the top. Apart from it being fully lined and made out of the softest silk velvet I have ever touched I love the double zip design of this skirt the most, allowing you to decide how much or how little leg you want to show and giving a Victorian style mourning suit a very modern fresh and easy to wear look. House of Worth was the first every Haute Couture design label that was started in the 1800s it inspired all the big labels that we know and love to day and is a true piece of history. As with all brands the labels change over the years and from my research I have dated this piece to be from the late 50s- to very early 60s. The craftsmanship, elegant design and true quality from everything down to the fabrics to the zips make this stunning vintage black velvet suit perfect and highly collectable.
