1980's Royal Blue Silk Taffeta Cocktail Dress With Back Bow and Crinoline


1980's royal blue silk taffeta fitted strapless cocktail dress by Arnold Scaasi. The neckline is very architectural and finishes with two points. The front is fitted across the bodice and gathers around the hips while the bottom skirt layer poufs out from underneath with the help of a crinoline. The back is accented with a large deconstructed bow and the dress zips up the back. The bow is secured with snap buttons. In excellent condition, fits like a US 2-4. Boning in body of dress.
