Late 1980s Mike Benet Formals sequin dress
"Talk to me Harry Winston! Tell me all about it!"
The epitome of vintage glamooooour! This show-stopping number from the late 1980's/early 90s, by high quality prom, pageant and formal gown designer Mike Benet Formals, in a gorgeous deep, raspberry fuchsia, was clearly intended as an 80s twist on Marilyn's famous pink gown. She is in sparkling pristine mint condition! Ready to be draped in diamonds of all shapes and sizes.
