1980s Pierre Cardin Haute Couture Fuschia Ruffled Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Beyond fantastic..... is this RARE Pierre Cardin fuchsia ruffled silk taffeta long sleeve gown. Runway piece designed in the early 1980's and was the show stopper in the Ebony Fashion Fair. Since its unveiling the gown has lived amongst the gowns in the collection of Mrs. Johnson, the creator of the Historic Fair, and never worn again.

Gorgeous deep pink with layers and layers of billowy and pleated (two techniques words rarely often used together ) adding extra depth of dimension and discussion to the gown. Gorgeous ribbon at high neckline frames the face perfectly. The gown fastens via a back zipper, two hook-and-eyes and a snap closure. Unbelievable piece of Pierre Cardin in the Post Modern era.

Modern size 2, touches the floor on a 5'8" fit model w/o shoes.
