1970s Richilene Chiffon Floral Print Maxi Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Husband and wife design duo Richard and Ilene Pacun and founders of Richilene New York had an eye for creating beautiful high-end evening wear for their clients. This chiffon dress is just one example of their luxury handiwork. They new how to dress society with an era by merging socially significant counterculture clothing using elegant fabrics and beautiful silhouettes. Gown has almost a "psychedelia" meets "Granny's Attic" print. Combined with an almost angelic long and flowing silhouette. Elegant pleating around the round collar and at the waist is used to cascade down the skirt to add to the ethereal nature. The sleeves are flared. The collar ties at center front, creating a keyhole detail. There are no closures.

This gown is versatile and can be worn day or night to a casual or dressy event. Can be worn all seasons (depending where you live). Both the style and pattern are both some of fashion's classic design, so you will be able to wear this dress far into the future!

Fits a modern size 10.

Length of garment is 61" inches. Can be hemmed.

Good. There is a small pin-prick size hole on one of the sleeves from a tag the cleaners attached. Picture shown. As an aside -- we have since changed dry cleaners..
