Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Victor Costa earned a name for himself by designing fashionable and yet affordable evening wear with a nod to the higher end American and French designer labels. This classic black lace dress is strongly influenced by the nude illusion designs popularized in the 1950's. It zips, snaps and hooks at the back with a black lace flesh tone lined bodice. The bodice is layered with sheer dotted netting with a modified batwing silhouette. The skirt consists of a taffeta lining layered with netting and a lace overlay providing volume and texture. It is all cinched together at the waist by a black satin sash. Originally retailed at Neiman Marcus...excellent vintage condition.
