1970's Claude Riha Couture White Pleated Chiffon One-Shoulder Grecian Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Ethereal crisp-white goddess gown from Parisian couturier Claude Riha. This stunning chiffon dress has so much detail, you can tell it was made with loving devotion. The bodice is hand-pleated and hand-stitched into place with a beautiful back draped-scarf detail. I adore the asymmetric one-shoulder construction which is incredibly modern. The full-length skirt flows in a perfect grecian style. The cut and construction are mirror to that of the famous Madame Gres. This garment would have taken days to finish! It has all the hallmarks of a very expensive, custom, high-end couture gown. A pure work of art and a study in dressmaking technique. Breathtaking and timeless; I totally imagine this gliding down the red carpet!
