1988 Stephen Sprouse Rock Sticker Beaded Dress New Condition

About

Stephen Sprouse (1953-2004) recognized as both an artist and fashion designer, took his famous rock sticker graphic inspiration from the club and punk rock scene of the 1970's and 80's. He designed this circa 1988 collection as pictured on page 292 of Caroline Milbank's book "New York Fashion the Evolution of American Fashion". An example of this collection was also seen in the 1989 Merchant-Ivory film, "Slaves of New York" which was about the life of Stephen Sprouse. Stephen Sprouse is an "original" American artist and fashion designer who designed his fashion collections with heavy inspiration from the 1960's fashion revolution and the Warhol subculture. He borrowed language and logos from youthful rebellions and slang and created fashions that are simple in style but adorned with graffiti, sequins, day-glo colors etc. This strapless sequined graffiti logo club dress is an iconic example of Sprouse's combination of art and fashion. Sprouse's fashions are known as haute couture club wear as they are fashioned of expensive fabrics and hand applied adornments and finishings. Sprouse is the only American designer that has combined his artistic talent with trendy fashions-with-a-message. He was an important and lasting American designer who presented artistic, stylish and cultural messages in his fashion creations. This sheath style rock sticker dress is an excellent iconic example of Sprouse as an artist/designer and is an excellent representation of American Pop Culture as fashion. rather than referencing European haute couture. This dress is currently part of permanent museum collections. Dress fashioned of silk and adorned throughout with colorless sequins. Elasticized at top of bust line; fully lined. Condition: unworn; excellent Size: 8; bust: to 35"; waist: approx: 34"; hips: 38"; length: 25"
