1979 Givenchy Haute-Couture Black Silk Linen Strapless Hourglass Mermaid Gown

About

Givenchy, the name itself evokes glamour, refined elegance, simplicity and style. Givenchy's trademark of sculpted lines and luxurious fabrics make his work easily recognizable. This gorgeous gown, dating back to his 1979 fall-winter collection, is a beautiful example of his brilliance. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; luxurious black course silk linen with bold gold-hardware. I adore the pointy sculpted plunge corset strapless bodice. The hourglass curved waist with mermaid fishtail skirting creates the perfect amount of drama to this timeless beauty. As Givenchy said, "The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress." Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:38 inches Length top to waist:10 inches Length waist to hem:41 inches This vintage Givenchy Haute-Couture numbered gown is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. The inside is immaculate and all hand finished. Closes with hand-set Eclair metal zipper, built-in corset and fully lined in china silk. The garment is a wonderful wearable investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
