1970's Ted Lapidus Couture Cinnamon Floral Print Lace-Up Billow Sleeve Dress


Seductive Ted Lapidus Haute-Couture boutique cinnamon floral print dress from the mid 1970's. After an apprenticeship with Dior, Ted Lapidus started his own fashion house in 1951. In 1963, he created a near scandal in the world of fashion by forming a partnership with the manufacturer Belle Jardinière, which mass-produced his designs for their France stores. Regardless, that year he was admitted to the official French couture association. “He was one of the first to do boutiques, along with Yves Saint Laurent,” said George Simonton, an assistant professor of fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. “They became so popular that they spread to the United States.” This stunning cinnamon floral-print "light as a feather" silk blend dress is a perfect example of his talent. I love the dramatic wide cuff billow-sleeves with provocative lace-up bodice. The hourglass nipped-waist compliments the flowing two-tiered bohemian swing skirt. It's a garment for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless. The pictures say it all! Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:Swing Sweep Sleeve Length:26 inches Total Length:44 inches This Ted Lapidus dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working front-zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
