1990s Dusky Rose John Galliano Open Weave Knit Dress


This dress is from Galliano's main line and dates to the nineties - which one can see not only from the version of his label seen inside in the dress but readily in the lines of the dress itself. It's long lean silhouette and fitted body-con cut screams nineties and supermodels. This silhouette was out of fashion for a while but it is firmly back in fashion, and pieces like this feel fresh and new once again. Especially when they are such outstanding pieces like this one is. This pretty supermodel length dress showcases Galliano's love of both drape and cut. It is quite stunning and the simple design belies a masterful cut that uses the bias cut movement created by the weave of the fabric to hug and encase the body. When the dress is off the body it seems impossibly ling and skinny but once on the knit opens and curves around the body. The fabric has no content tag but feels like a silk raffia mix and the multiple weave techniques used give it interesting play and texture. That mixed with the dusky rose color make for one fabulous dress. It is so simple but so very sexy. Excellent condition Unlined and slips over the head to wear. The dress does stretch and curve to the body once one. The weave is open so it is semi-transparent. Note that it is more of a pastel color in person - not quite so deep in tone as how it photoed Shoulders: 13.5-15" Bust: 13-17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 10-14" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 13.5-18" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 60" from neck to hem but will come up some once on Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.
