This is a vintage cocktail/evening dress made in four-ply silk crepe. We believe it to be from the 1980's. It was found without the label, but based on the design & construction, it is clearly a designer original. It was purchased in an estate sale with a lot of designer clothing. The boxier silhouette is very 80's, but along with the details it is also reminiscent of the 1920's. Very chic. The main body of the dress is made of black 4-ply silk crepe. The ruffles are made of off-white silk charmeuse, with a fine merrow stitch to finish the edges. The center back zipper is concealed by a hand-sewn placket. In great condition except for a few light-colored stains on the ruffles, which are unnoticeable. This is an exquisite dress with fine dressmaker details in fine fabric, perfect for that very special occasion. Wear it with 20's style dancing pumps & a jeweled headband for a real vintage look! We LOVE it!
