1970's Stavropoulos Navy-Blue Draped Silk Chiffon Grecian Goddess Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

George Stavropoulos was a New York fashion designer best known for his innovatively draped dresses and evening gowns that seemed to float in air. Many of his designs were influenced by the grace of classic Greek sculpture. He was couturier to celebrities such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and Barbra Streisand. His gowns were made almost entirely by hand in his own atelier. Their quality and workmanship rivaled that of Parisian Haute-Couture. They were expensive, selling for up to $7500 in the late 1970's. This breathtaking navy-blue "light as a feather" silk-chiffon gown is a wonderful example of his genius. The bodice is a seductive low-cut plunge, key-hole. I love the sculptural bias-cut draped body which is so modern. Stavropoulos ignored fashion trends and women buying one of his gowns know that it will never go out of style.
