1970s Jon Shannon Red Chinese Embroidery Dress
This dress is amazing. Jon Shannon was a costume designer by trade but for a few years he produced one of a kind dresses made from vintage and antique fabrics and trims. This one is the best I have ever seen, made of red Chinese silk adorned with antique Chinese embroidery, the bits of embroidery down the front hand loose like ribbons giving the dress wonderful depth and a very exotic look. The long, loose, caftan style cut and the interesting pouched sleeves are also beautiful touches. I am a huge fan of brides wearing red, so to me, this would be a gorgeous wedding dress for an unconventional bride.
