1970s Givenchy Floral & Heart Print Silk & Metallic Dress

About

I love wearing color, and for those girls that also are obsessed with wearing color, you will love this dress because it delivers color in spades. It is a brilliant mix of print and color and the gold lurex thread that is worked through the silk to form little golden hearts are the perfect finishing detail. The fabric is a fine silk chiffon with a brilliant floral print in bright hues screened over its surface. Woven on top of the pattern are perfect little hearts made from a gold lurex thread that gives the dress a beautiful but subtle shimmer. Anchoring the print is a solid blue silk satin edging that is used for the cuffs and the front collar/neckline detailing. The sleeves are quite full and puff out wonderfully above the buttoned cuffs. There are three full layers used in the skirt, the top on is a bias cut silk chiffon layer, the inner slimmer skirt is a tissue silk and between the two, a floating layer of silk organza helps to give a touch of volume. It feels very fresh and current and you cannot help but be in a good mood in a dress like this. Excellent condition with one small note to review below. Fully line in a yellow tissue silk with the sleeves left unlined and an extra layer of yellow silk organza through the skirt. It closes with a side painted metal zipper below the waist line and fabric covered snaps above that. The front buttons are functional as well. Each cuff buttons to close. There is the smallest amount of fading to the blue silk on the upper neck on one side as seen in the provided photo. Hand finished.
