Alexander McQueen 1996 The Hunger White Cotton & Silk Asymmetrical Ruffled Dress

About the Item

We love vintage Alexander McQueen and he designed this dress for his Spring Summer 1996 collection. This beautiful white dress has a tube fitting bodice with spaghetti straps and fits like a mini dress with attached asymmetrical layered sheer silk crepe overlaying down to the knee. The layered skirt features beautiful ribbon trim along the hem with gray topstitching. This topstitching carries onto the bodice along the seams for that beautifully tailored look McQueen is known for. This collectible piece can be worn day or night depending on accessories and shoes worn. This dress closes with an off center zipper and hook and eye at the top. The bodice portion of this dress is a cotton, polyester and elastain blend, and the skirt layers are 100% silk. The bodice has a small amount of stretch due to the elastain content and is meant to be worn very fitted. It was Tony Scott’s campy vampire film, starring David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve, that inspired "The Hunger." McQueen was often inspired by movies and that was reflected in many of his runway shows. This dress is in very good condition with one very faint yellow mark on the front. It fits like a US size 0/2. BUST: 32" WAIST: 26" HIPS: 34" LENGTH of under mini dress from top of strap: 23" LENGTH of full dress from top of strap to hem of silk chiffon layers: 30" FULL STRAP LENGTH: 15"
