1970's Galanos Blue Yellow Abstract Print Silk-Chiffon Goddess Dress & Shawl

About

Dedication to excellence in craftsmanship and design was the foundation of James Galanos' career. The quality of workmanship found in his clothing is unsurpassed in America today. It may seem a contradiction that his sophisticated, mature and elegant clothing were designed and produced in Southern California, traditionally the land of sportswear. But Galanos was satisfied to remain where he began his business in 1951, a continent away from New York and the center of the American fashion industry. This stunning blue, yellow & ivory abstract print "light as a feather" silk-chiffon goddess dress is a perfect example of his talent. I love the low-cut scoopneck plunge with thin-straps. The minimal nipped-waist design compliments the yards and yards of flowing silk-chiffon used. My favorite part is the matching fringed long shawl-wrap which are be worn in different ways. It's a garment for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless! Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:52 inches This vintage designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. This item is over 30 years old and is truly stunning!
