1970s Zandra Rhodes Print & Black Dramatic Lingerie Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

What a wonderful and dramatic dress this is. It would have been originally sold as a lingerie piece but it is opaque enough that in our modern world it can now easily be worn out as a proper dress. It is made of a fine synthetic silk that is hand washable. Its pleated ruffle top and signature print instantly identifies it as Zandra Rhodes. I have had similar pieces to this in various solid colors in the past but this one is a little extra fabulous since it has one of her signature prints on its black base. Zandra is known for her use of design and pattern and her absolute genius for cut and color shine here. The dress is sleeveless and has double straps that suspend it from the shoulders. It falls in a sheath of fabric with a ruffle detailing the top of the bust. The entire top half of the dress is printed and the cut is very easy to wear and flattering. A little inset of lace on the skirt is the perfect finish. Excellent condition

Unlined and made from a silk looking lingerie weight washable polyester fabric. A classic Zandra Rhodes print screened onto the fabric. It slips on to wear and is opaque enough to be able to be worn on its own. Tagged a S but the loose cut will allow a variety of sizes to fit it. It also has a Bonwit Teller tag
