My photos don’t do justice to this gorgeous black vintage Climax evening gown or holiday party dress. Designed by Karen Okada for David Howard, this piece is glamorous and sexy. The top of the strapless dress has horizontally ruched black sheer fabric over a lined bodice. The center of the front is gathered into a v neck line and held in place by a rhinestone piece. The skirt, which is partially lined, is made up of three tiers of two layers of fabric (one a sheer fabric, the other tulle) in the back and on the sides. The front only has two tiers, exposing the front of the legs from about the knee down. This would be a fantastic dress to wear to that special holiday or New Year’s party. In fact, it's perfect for any festive or formal event. All you need is a few accessories and the right heels to look stunning in this standout piece!

This dress was probably made in the 1980’s (RN 40262). It still has its original tags and was once priced at $240.00! It is in wonderful vintage condition. The dress is 100% polyester and the lining 100% acetate, dry clean only. Made in California (USA), it is a vintage 9/10.The chest and hips are 34 inches and the waist 26.
