Large aubergine silk satin long dress with missing lining and on which was to be affixed the mark of Madame Babani. The dickey on the chest and three-quarter sleeves are embroidered with chain stitch in gilded bronze metallic yarn. Indian-inspired decor of boteh friezes, pelmet strips and large sun-shaped wheels. The kaftan closes at the shoulders with eight yellow-curry pearl beads with blue-white-red laces. No Lining it' s why the label is missing, but definitly from Babani French House.
