Fetching C.1980 Albert Nipon 2-Piece Victorian Style Plum Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The detail on this 2-piece dress ensemble is up to Pearl and Albert Nipon's standards for providing feminine and stylish attire. The top has an asymmetrical tie at the neck with a brilliant row of buttons at the front and the cuffs. Modest shoulder pads and netting provide a lift at the upper sleeve reminiscent of Victorian era styles. The skirt hooks and zips at the waist with flat pleats to the hips and full pleats to the hem. Put both pieces together with a coordinating belt for an ultra feminine look or wear the top separately with jeans for a different vibe. The plum, blue and burgundy striped fabric appears to be silk. Excellent vintage condition.
