1994 Yves Saint Laurent Documented Red Silk & Black Velvet Cut-Out Plunge Gown

About

Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent ruby-red silk and black velvet gown from his infamous 1994 Rive Gauche collection. Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. The bodice is a seductive plunging bow-trimmed, cut-out design. The sculpted bias cut shelf-bust really flatters the figure while the high-slit skirting adds the perfect amount of drama. It is classic and modern, yet has its own avant-garde elements. "In the mid-1970s the relevance of haute couture was seriously debated. The political and social upheaval of the 1960s, the emergence of a plethora of creative ready-to-wear designers, and the increasing preference for a sportswear approach to dressing as represented by American fashion were among the shifts in lifestyles and taste that appeared to sound the death knell of the calcified and elitist world of the maisons de couture. It was at this time that Yves Saint Laurent, haute couture’s preeminent practitioner, threw caution to the prevailing winds with a collection of unrivaled fantasy and luxury." Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:27 inches Hips:37 inches Total Length:58 inches This Yves Saint Laurent documented designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working side-zipper. This garment is over 20 years old and is truly stunning.
