1970's Valentino Couture Burgundy-Red Silk Chiffon & Lace Pintuck Pleated Dress

About

For over forty years Valentino has been one of the most prominent names in fashion, creating some of the world's most elegant and classic designs. It was Valentino's desire to design clothes that would celebrate the female form and accentuate a woman's sensuality. "I don't think any man in the world wants to go out with a woman dressed like a boy," he once said. This stunning burgundy-red shirtdress is a perfect example of his vision. The dress is fashioned from rich double layered silk-chiffon. He then uses an ingenious pintuck technique that gives the garment so much depth and texture. The bodice has gorgeous chantilly-lace inserts mixed with a chic button-down design. I love the semi-sheer sleeves with dramatic French cuffs. The skirt nips in at the waist for an ultra flattering swing-skirt silhouette. Valentino has dressed some of the world's most glamorous people, including Princess Margaret, Julia Roberts and Claudia Schiffer. I totally see this rare couture show-stopper lighting up any event! Measurements Bust:36-37 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:40 inches Sleeve Length:24 Total Length:40 inches This Valentino Couture designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working hand-set front metal zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
