Fall 1990 Azzedine Alaia Scooped & Sculpted Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

From the Fall 1990 collection comes this amazing sculpted Alaia knit dress made from his signature stretch knit that was made to cling to and exaggerate your every curve. It skims over the body and molds to fit. The neckline is scooped low with a curved line that shows off a girls cleavage to full, almost scandalous advantage. You can see how it sits on the reference ohoto from Vogue that year. The dress worn by Christy Turlington is a version in white with this same neckline but a fuller skirt. On this version that fitted silhouette extends right down to the hem with no defined waist seam. Exaggerating the curves of the dress are seaming set to suggest an hourglass figure at the front. At the back the seaming is curved to follow up and around the butt. Each sleeve is cut lean and long. It is amazing and sexy as hell. Everything an Alaia is meant to be! Excellent condition.

The dress is unlined and slips on to wear. Tagged a vintage Alaia medium
