1980's Gucci Couture Black Velvet & Floral Print Silk Strapless Party Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Earlier Gucci garments are very hard to come by and this dress is breathtaking. Perfect for any upcoming party; you can't help but feel feminine in this couture beauty! The dress is fashioned from black silk-velvet and pansy-garden floral silk. The bodice is a seductive, fully-corseted, low-cut plunge strapless. My favorite part is the nipped-waist hourglass met by yards and yards of a flowing draped-bubble skirt. The heavily-pleated organza seaming cleverly draws the eye into the waist and gives the illusion of an even greater nipped in hourglass silhouette. It surely makes a statement and has couture-level handwork you expect to find from Gucci. A timeless beauty that will work for any modern event.
