1970s Geoffrey Beene Raspberry Iridescent Silk Evening Dress W/ Pom-pom Belt

$2,200

About

Remarkably designed dress from Geoffrey Beene! This dress features an iridescent silk that truly catches the eye! It opens at the front with hidden zipper closure and also slightly ballooned sleeves that are finished with long cuffs. The dress has pockets. The hem is quilted. It also features deep inverted pleating to create dimension . Geoffrey Beene began his career in the 1950s, designing under numerous New York houses including Teal Traina, finally opening his own label in 1963. Beene was incredibly conscious of the human body, and was particularly regardful of the figure in motion - as Beene once said “clothing is nothing until it hits the body." His designs were created to work with the client’s body, encasing it lightly and giving it a more artful structure. Beene's reinterpretations of dress formality, use of synthetics, and unusual combination of materials (accessories in acrylic and diamonds, for example), set him aside from his contemporaries who focused on the business of fashion, rather than the artistry of fashion.
