  • Preowned 1980s Emerald Silk Taffeta Dior Off Shoulder Dress
    More info
    This Is An Amazing Mid-Eighties Number That Is So Representative Of The More Subtle And Elegant Movement Of That Time Period. The Long And Lean Silhouette Was In Full Swing But You Still See The Use Of Extravagant Draping And That Gorgeous Bare Shoulder Silhouette That Is Presented Beautifully In This Dress. The Draped Collar Is Set So That It Flows Right Into The "sleeve" And The Result Leaves The Entire Shoulder Bare. The Bodice Has Softly Placed Panels Of Fabric That Wrap And Drape Around The Wearer Adding Texture And Shape. The Waist Is Nipped By That Draping Fabric And The Skirt Flows In A Long And Lean Column From There, Hugging The Body And Creating Curves. I Love The Dipped Front Bodice And That The Back Has Been Left Unadorned By The Draping So That No Extra Volume Is Added And It Has A Sleek And Simple Finish. The Fabric Itself Is An Exquisite Choice As The Silk Taffeta Catches The Light And Changes Color In A Subtle Way So The Dress Seems To Come Alive And Flow Over The Skin Yet The Dress Itself Is Structured And Not Flowing Or Loose Fitting. It Is Exquisite. Excellent Condition With One Small Item To Note Below.Unlined And Closes With A Back Painted Metal & Nylon Zipper. Lightly Boned Through The Bodice With A Muslin Inner Bodice Piece That Has Boning Running Through It. There Is A Small Slit In The Fabric At The Back About 15" Above The Hemline That Is Just Under 1" Ling. Its Skinny And Appears Stable. It Did Not Expand When Cleaned So Is Left As Found - See Photo. Priced Accordingly.Bust: 17" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamWaist: To 14" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamHips: To 20" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamLength: Approx 55" From Top Of Shoulder (If There Was One) To HemModern Sizing Equivalent: Sml-MedThis Garment Has Been Professionally Cleaned, Pressed And Is Odor Free.
