1980s Loris Azzaro Couture Bright Pink Silk Taffeta Backless Plunge Dress

About

This wonderful dress is made from a bright pink silk taffeta. It is a dramatic statement piece that will turn every head when you walk into a room. Loris Azzaro was a favorite of actresses like Raquel Welch and Sophia Loren and he quickly gained international recognition with his designs. Here he takes the drama of pink to new heights with this bold gown that is just stunning. On my dress form the poufed ruffled detailing that runs across the neckline and over each arm sits more on the top of the shoulder, but on a real girl it will fall off the shoulder as it needs more support then what the dress form could give it to sit properly. This create a beautiful expanse of bare skin across the top of the shoulders. The neckline then plunges down into a deep V on both the front and back. The waist nips in beneath this and then the skirt flows to the floor and widens out as it nears the hem. The bottom poufed ruffle picks up the shoulder detailing and both of those ruffles have an inner construct of tulle so that the incredible shape is kept and the volume he desired is achieved. It is stunning. Excellent condition. Fully lined in matching pink silk and closes at the back with a painted metal and nylon zipper. The bodice is boned and the ruffled parts have in inner lining of tulle for shape. Some grubbiness along the edge of the hem Bust: to 19.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: to 14.75" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: open Bodice: 15" from top of bodice to bottom of seaming where it meets the skirt Skirt: 45" at the longest point at the back hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED Reference Photos: Cherie by Erin Leydon. This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
