Christian Lacroix Numbered Haute Couture Red Satin & Silk Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Luscious silk satin, hand finishing and extra couture touches are all used in this great dress designed by Christian Lacroix circa 2000. His couture line was in business for a short time, never turning a profit because of the high quality of the clothing, making this a great addition to your collection. A generous satin collar drapes to the left and it matches the cuffs. The bodice of the is gathered and drapes above the waistline and the slim skirt below. There is a center back zipper and the off side collar design is repeated here. The waistline dips lower in back. The dress is fully lined in red silk charmeuse and bears the numbered haute couture label. It is in excellent condition and I was told that the original retail price was over $30,000.00.
