1977 Hanae Mori Couture Leopard Animal Print Chiffon Rhinestone Plunge Dress

About

Breathtaking 1977 museum quality leopard print silk-chiffon dress by Hanae Mori. Whilst on a Paris holiday in 1960, Mori had a fateful fitting with Coco Chanel. She claimed this meeting changed her life and she challenged herself to realize her own dream of designing haute-couture. She returned to her small Tokyo office, where she had been designing significant numbers of costumes for directors including Ozu, Oshima and Kurosawa. By 1965 she had launched her own collection and had orders from prestigious stores such as Neiman Marcus. This is everything you look for in a Hanae Mori garment. Made of feather light silk chiffon that has been custom screened with one of her stunning novelty prints. The dress is also lined in pure silk so it literally feels weightless! The perfect mix of natural tones is pure Hanae and it has her signature draping effect. I adore illusion plunge bell-sleeve bodice with sparkling rhinestone applique. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust and skims the hips as it flows down the body. A timeless dress that is perfect for any modern event. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:29 inches Hips:40 inches Sleeve Length:25 inches Total Length:46 inches This vHanae Mori designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back zipper and couture finishing. This garment is over 40 years old and is truly stunning!
