Evening Dresses. From our unique collection of Evening Dresses, this piece is offered for sale online by WilliamVintage. Global shipping is available. Inspired by a 1950s silhouette, this wonderful winter dress is extremely flattering and the perfect choice for a Black Tie event. Constructed in black wool crepe and detailing a mahogany ranch mink trim, flared skirt and tapered sleeves, the dress is a sinuous, confident piece crafted to enhance curves to the fullest. Originally opened as a fine lingerie shop in 1916 by Martha Lange, Rena Lange expanded into ball gowns, couture suits and eventually a prêt-à-porter collection in 1982 thanks to the innovation of company owner Peter Günthert and his wife, chief designer Renate Günthert. The luxury label entered its third generation when Daniel Günthert took over the company from his parents in 2001.
