Dramatic 1975 Loris Azzaro Couture Pink Silk Gown & Cape

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This stunning and dramatic pink silk organza gown was made for my client in 1975 by Loris Azzaro at his atelier. You so rarely see his Haute Couture pieces anywhere and to have one as incredible as this is just a treat. Azzaro was a favorite of actresses like Raquel Welch and Sophia Loren among others and quickly gained international recognition with his sexy designs. Here he takes a more romantic turn with this pink confection. It is just stunning. The bodice is flat pleated and shaped - a true feat to construct properly when using a fabric like this. The skirt is made of the same pink silk and flows to the floor with yards of fabric used. I love that he layers the silk of the skirt over a deeper hued pink jersey so you get this interesting depth effect with the color. The cape that tops the gown is nothing short of amazing. It flows from a single hook at the neck to cascade over the gown in a fabulous swath of flowers and silk. The entire outer edge is detailed with huge, hand-done four petaled flowers and each has a cluster of faux pearls in its center. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in deep rose jersey through the skirt and a pale pink silky rayon through the bodice. It closes with a painted metal and nylon zipper. The bodice is boned. There is the teeniest of discoloration along the upper edge of the bodice - I could not photo it and only see it when its lying flat and in certain light - priced accordingly. The cape has a single hook and eye at the neck.
