1968 Rudi Gernreich Green Wool Scalloped Cut-Out Cage Mod Space-Age Mini Dress

About

A fearless designer, Rudi Gernreich’s body conscious garments dazzled the fashion world with originality and vision. Gernreich held a futurist view of fashion that resulted in innovations such as using plastic in clothes and removing inner construction. This stunning lime-green wool mod shift dress is a perfect example of his genius. The garment's simple unstructured silhouette is so classic yet the unique scalloped cut-out cage bodice is a treasure trove of mod fashion. Just look at the clever way it links by a lattice of looped knitted knots! This rare garment is iconic, comfortable and a fierce fashion statement. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Hips:up to 38 inches Total Length:37 inches This Rudi Gernreich designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or discoloration. Garment closes with a back green-zipper. The only sign of age is some minor surface moth nibbles which do not go through the fabric. This item is over 40 years old and is truly stunning!
