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!
