Rare Donna Karan Chanelesque Beaded Boucle Eyelash Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Donna Karan's 2003 top-of-the line runway collection and, when originally offered, was a store sellout! Offered brand new purchased at Bergdorf Goodman. This piece at the time was considered exceptional in workmanship and tailoring equivalent to a superior Chanel garment.

Dress fashioned of imported large black and white wool houndstooth check in combination with stitched rows of eyelash yarn on creme net and showered with large circular gold sequins. Hemline border mimics the look and feel of soft black patent leather. The sprinkling of sequins throughout gives the dress a unique and striking look in combination with its graphic pattern. The strapless, sexy, sheath style tulips out into a flirty bias cut hemline. Bodice is softly boned with soft underwire for support. Dress is luxuriously lined in rich creme silk charmeuse. Side zipper closure. Exceptional tailoring details executed in the design, cut and hand finishing to that of a couture piece.

Size: 4; bust: to 32"; waist: 27"; hips: 34"; length: 32.5"; Note: tiny bit of nylon in fabric allows for some stretch.

Condition: brand new; unworn. This is a very substantial dress and should not be confused with Donna Karan's other lines.
