1990s Silk Organza Pink Gown w Cape

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a really spectacular and unusual dress by New York designer Jackie Rogers who is known for her sculptural evening pieces. This is a super example of her work. It is completely done in a bright, vibrant pink silk organza of the highest quality. The dress is tiered in layers of that gorgeous fabric with one tier going up and over the shoulder. This cleverly hides a structured bodice underneath that is lightly boned so you feel hugged and secure but look like a floating angel! It is completely romantic and stunning and ever so feminine. The little sleeveless mini cape is an almost oval in matching silk with two opening through which your arms slip through - sort of a combo cape, shrug and shawl. Amazing and in unworn, mint condition!

Bust: 17" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 15" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 20" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Lenght: 58" from top of shoulder to bottom hem

Fully lined in hot pink silk and lightly boned through the bodice. The mini cape is unlined. The dress closes at the side with a hidden zipper and the tier at that point has hidden hook and eye the closure is hidden once on. The color is as brightly hued as shown but a truer pink hue then how it photoed - better in person!

Modern Sizing equivalent: XS-SML (4-6)
