Vintage 1969 Rudi Gernreich Cross Your Heart Empire Red Navy Knit Mod Maxi Dress

About the Item

A fearless designer, Rudi Gernreich’s body conscious garments dazzled the fashion world with originality and vision. Gernreich held a futurist view of fashion that resulted in innovations such as using plastic in clothes and removing inner construction. This iconic red and navy-blue "cross your heart" maxi dress is a perfect example of his genius. The bodice has a low-cut plunge empire band crossing under the breasts and closing over the center back zipper. I love the inverted pleat at the center front and flattering a-line silhouette with hidden pockets. This rare garment is modern, comfortable and a fierce fashion statement! Measurements Bust: 32 inches Hips: 40 inches Total Length: 57 inches This Rudi Gernreich designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or discoloration. The dress closes with a back zipper. One tiny pin-sized spot to the knit which is not noticeable when worn. This garment is over 50 years old and will only increase in value.
