Vintage 1980s cocktail dress by a classic 1980s designer, Climax by Karen Okada for David Howard. Gothic, sexy, elegant, revealing and festive:

• stretch black lace with a floral overlay
• deep sweetheart neckline
• 80s shoulder pads (removable)
• center satin panel decorated and trimmed with black beads and sparkling black luminescent sequins
• basque waist that flows into a full, gathered, lacy skirt
• long sheer lace sleeves with ruching down the wrists
• deep, plunging back with ties behind the neck
• fully lined (with sheer sleeves)

Marked a size 9/10, but that was then: nowadays it will best fit a size small/medium, or a 4-8. It has tons of stretch and the bodice will fit you like a glove. Shown on a size 6 mannequin (we know she says size 8, but believe us):

bust 34 - 37"
waist 27 - 30"
hips 37 - 42"
length 46" in front, 52" in back
shoulder to shoulder 16" - 18"


Condition: We put this one at good, though still gorgeous. All the seams are tight and intact and the lace is nearly free of snags. The caveats: the black color has gone a bit purple in a few places, and there are a few sequins and beads absent, though most seem present -- even on the edge of the neckline, amazingly. Priced accordingly as a vintage frock with tons of great details and a few flaws.
