Tropical Tea Gown



Entertain visitors at home or attend the most elegant soiree in this sumptuous gown. In the colors of film noir or in tropical technicolor, you are sure to be a star. Inspired by the deco lines and elegant silhouettes of the 1930s, this sinuous frock features flattering graphic insets at the waist and hem.

Our slip dress is made of the fine Italian satin and designed, cut and sewn in our Chicago workshop.  The custom tropical print was designed by Esther Garcia of Butterfat Studios exclusively for Department of Curiosities.  Each gown is fully lined with 100% silk crepe de chine for opacity and a sleek silhouette.

Department of Curiosities gowns are handcrafted to order following a slow fashion model. This means that each piece is made with the utmost care and attention; each gown is placed and cut individually.
