1991 Leonard Haute-Couture Firework Print-Silk Strapless Party Dress & Cape

About

A breathtaking and ultra rare 1991 Leonard Haute-Couture dress ensemble that will turn heads! Leonard's originality is founded on a unique and recognizable style shared by all of its designs and fabrics used. This iconic runway dress made for Ivana Trump has that light and airy vibe which made this designer famous. An article from August 9, 1991 New York Times: "Ivana Trump, seen wearing Leonard clothes at the recent couture showings in Paris, has stirred talk that she may be contemplating a business endeavor with the line's designer, Daniel Tribouillard. She wore a fireworks-print silk chemise by Leonard to the Chanel show. She likes Leonard clothes, and she's been talking to Daniel Tribouillard about doing something. Mr. Tribouillard has designed a special 'Ivana' dress to be shown on the runway in New York at the recent Leonard resort show. Ivana wanna-be's can find Leonard clothes at Bergdorf Goodman." Not only is this dress a wonderful piece of fashion history but it is incredibly beautiful and well-made. The bodice is a seductive fully-boned, low-cut sweetheart, strapless plunge. Look at the fabulous multicolored tulle under the skirt to create that incredible pouf! The silhouette is ultra femme-fetale and so flattering. Museum quality! Measurements Bust: 32-33 inches Waist: 25 inches Hips: Free Sweep Length top to waist:10 inches Length waist to hem:19 inches This vintage Haute-Couture Leonard party dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working hidden handset side-zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
