About

I think this might be one of the absolute best pieces I have had the privilege of passing through my hands to date! It is an amazing silk Bill Blass sheath gown down in a stunning pink silk. Onto the pink base is an amazing floral pattern that trails from top to bottom, front and back, and is made up of huge deep pink blossoms on a brilliant green vine. This would be a customs print and done specifically for this fabric. The placement is perfection. It is like wearing a piece of art and at the same time it acts as a clever way to make the wearer appear even taller and leaner! The gown has a slight Asian feel to it - up one side there are a row of over-sized frog knots, made of the same silk. A built in foundation sits inside the bust and this inner construction is lightly boned and shaped to act almost as a banding so that the dress falls straight down from the bust and has only the suggestion of nipping in at the waist. It is extraordinary and amazing! Excellent condition!
