About

Outstanding piece of haute couture which is a perfect example of Yvonne Dudel & Jean Cazaubon work at Chanel in the early 80's. Crafted in a refined tulle "point d'esprit" guipure lace, with a petticoat, the gown features a plunging v-neckline together with a flattering deep v-neckline at the back, with ruffle collar all around. Removable flower brooch and optional large silk satin belt underlining the waist finishes with a bow at the rear. This piece is made of a light off-white silk maxi under dress which is closing with a zip at the back. One internal belt, four back cover buttons (see picture 8) and two large hooks close the guipure lace dress.
