Elegant Hanae Mori Grey Blue Silk Asian Floral Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This beautiful silk vintage floral print dress is a quality garment by Hanae Mori. Mori opened her fashion house in 1951 and steadily became more and more popular with these gloriously feminine, light and airy dresses until she became the first Asian woman admitted as an official haute couture design house by The Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris in 1977. A dress of this luxurious nature from Mori is a collectors dream! The silk sheer sleeves of this glorious piece dance and flutter about like butterfly wings, the butterfly her signature. The cool hues of the Asian floral pattern are light, tranquil and ethereal. The dusty blues and warm greys in the ground reminiscent of antique wallpapers. A generous silk tie belt pulls the dress together allowing for variable sizes.
