C.2000 Oscar de la Renta Aubergine Silk Taffeta Princess Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Oh the luxury and opulence of an Oscar de la Renta dress! This beautifully designed gown has an elegant old school look with a good dose of modern sculptural construction. Starting with rich aubergine silk taffeta, Mr. de la Renta formulates a strappy bodice with ruching at the bust and continues with inverted pleating at the skirt to create a bubble style silhouette. Add boning and lining to create stiffness and side pockets for practicality and voila!...party dress fit for a princess. Strappy heels complete the elegant look but consider deconstructing it with booties and a cropped leather jacket for a whole different take on style. Excellent vintage condition.
