Paco Rabanne Velvet and Lace Dress - 1970s


Stylish Paco Rabanne Velvet and Lace Dress. This great looking dress was made, we believe, as a prototype in the late 70s, early 80s. In purple velvet and lace it a very clever panel technique that gives a beautiful and sexy silhouette. This strapless dress (structured bust) with a side zipper features a back slit with sparkly studs. Fully lined. Size label is missing - we recommend a guideline of size 6 UK (please refer to conversion chart for further details) – it was too small for the mannequin, which made it impossible to close the zipper (hence the few photos). This is an elegant and flirty dress. Designer/Label: Paco Rabanne Period: Late 1970s early 1980s Origin: France Materials: no care label, but we can identify velvet and lace. Condition: Excellent Size: We recommend a guideline size 6 UK Measurements (approximately) Length: 88cm / 35’’ Bust: 72cm / 28.5’’ (structured) Waist: 66cm / 26’’ Hip: 88cm / 35’’ Mannequin Measurements (approx) Height: 1.80m/5’9" Bust: 83cm/33" Waist: 63cm/25" Hips: 88cm/35" *Please refer to the size chart below for more information.
