About



This Oscar De la Renta gown is just waiting for the perfect party and I am thrilled to have it in the shop. The construction is beautiful on this one with a really sculpted defined shape and that incredible silver metallic design worked directly into the fabric. I love the oversized plaid pattern, when done in a silver lurex thread woven into the deep blue silk base it seems to take on a fresh new light and different perspective. The gown is a dream of construction with internal details like tulle set in and around the hip to gently hold the shape there and a wide band of dressmakers tape hidden inside the hem so that when it falls it has a touch of weight and fullness. The collar and front are done in wide panels of deep blue silk that anchor the gown and keep the silver from being overwhelming. Oscar being Oscar the still added some extra glimmer with huge glass crystal buttons running down the front. I love the shape and cut - it is classic hostess gown and very glamorous with a full skirt that flows to the floor and is perhaps a touch fuller then how it photoed. A fabulous and early Oscar design that is even better in person. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a navy muslin, including the sleeves, and closes with a painted metal zipper and hook & eye at the back neck. Hand finishes. Tulle inserts at the hip. Heavy horsehair band inside wide hem It is even more lime and gold in person. The buttons are decorative with each buttonhole properly finished underneath.
