1960's Oscar de la Renta Sapphire-Blue Metallic Silk-Brocade Rhinestone Gown

About

Oscar de la Renta is one of the world's leading fashion designers. Trained by Cristóbal Balenciaga and Antonio Castillo, he became internationally known in the 1960's as one of the couturiers to dress Jacqueline Kennedy. This breathtaking creation from Oscar De La Renta is not only rare but shockingly timeless. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; metallic-threaded and textured sapphire-blue floral brocade. The sleeves are lean and long with the most beautiful rhinestone-button cuffs. I adore the over-sized obi belted waistline! This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust and skims the hips. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day haute-couture. Here is a gown with attitude and elegance! Measurements Bust:36-37 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:42 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:59 inches This vintage designer gown is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back-zipper. This item is over 40 years old and is truly breathtaking!

About Oscar De La Renta (Manufacturer)

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
