Spring 1990 Azzedine Alaia Scooped Front "Fishtail"Dress

About

Insanely sexy, this low scooped front Azzedine Alaia dress from the 1990 collection has that in your face sensuality that Alaia is known for. It is made form his signature bandage knit so it clings and hugs the body and your every curve. This one is scooped with a low curve at the front that sits under your bust with equally low V's cut down each side and a modified halter back. These were meant to be worn with one of his signature bra tops or you can pair it with a bustier as I have done (not included). The main seams are all held together by a criss cross of fine cording so that a bit of skin peeks through. It is cut to create a long lean line with seam work curving across and under the butt. Here the seam changes to a curved horizontal line that follows the curve of a woman's backside. The dress is finished with a saucy little pleated "fishtail" skirt that kicks up with your every move. This pleat detail wraps completely around the lower skirt. Excellent condition Unlined and slips on. The knit has stretch and will adapt to follow your curves. It is a little large on my mannequin so the fit will be better on the proper sized girl. No size tag is present. Note that the black bustier is for styling only and is not included. Bust: open with no true side seams Waist: 16-18" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 16-18" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 49" from shoulder to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED Reference Photo: Azzedine Alaïa, Dress, photographed by Gilles Bensimon for ELLE, 1990 / Cindy Crawford image credit unknown / Image from the book 'Alaia- Azzedine Alaia in the 21st Century,' the accompanying exhibit book for the Alaia exhibit at the Groninger Museum.
