1970s Stephen Burrows Red Drape Back Evening Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About


Gorgeous! This dress is an excellent testament to Stephen Burrow’s bold use of color and distinct, dramatic draping. The floor - length dress is composed of a bright red - orange jersey knit wear fabric, and has an accent center seam running the full length of the front of the dress. The dress features a deep, wide v - neck, and short flutter sleeves. The flutter sleeves are pulled in at the back of the dress, into a waterfall - like drape. France's finest designers were pitted against their American counterparts in the 1973 runway "Battle of Versailles." When looking at this dress, we are reminded of Yves Saint Laurent conceding sartorial defeat in the face of Stephen Burrow's designs. Go Stephen!
