Shell pink lurex dress with overblouse
Although lurex was invented in the late 1940s, it came into its own in the 1970s. The flexible fabric was ideal for moving on the dance floor, and its glittery look was perfect under disco lights. Long evening gowns were popular and they were often made in pastel colours. The outfit would have been worn with platform shoes.
