From my personal collection of unique luxury garments lovingly collected through many fashion eras, comes this true vintage custom/tailor made original 80's formal or ballgown, a testament of an era long gone and a spectacular costume, worthy of a fashion museum.
An elaborate ruffled style reminiscent of Spanish garments, the gown has a fully sequined, tight, well tailored, corset bodice extending to the hips and closing with long zipper in the back. The skirt starts from the mid hip in cascading sheer black organza ruffles on a bias cut taffeta circle. The skirt is shorter in front and longer on the back creating a tail/trein for added drama. One shoulder double ruffled strap adds to the overall "fluffy" flair. Satin lining on the upper body.
This dress is well, spectacular, making a statement effortlessly. Pictured in a Christmas issue of 1982 VOGUE France, it has been custom made and worn once. Lovingly cared for through the years in its own box, the gown is immaculate in every way. Just waiting for a lady who is daring enough to wear it nonchalantly and elegant enough to carry it with a regal posture.
I named it "CARMEN", with the heroine of Bizet's opera in mind.
