Avant Garde Givenchy Vintage Dress Velvet Statement Evening Gown 12

About

This absolutely stunning vintage Givenchy evening gown was purchased at I Magnin in the 1980's. This avant garde evening gown has a pleated structural flounce at the hemline with velvet and taffeta panels that almost form a balloon hem, and a giant taffeta bow at the neckline. The sleeves have zippers at the wrists, and the beautiful rhinestone buttons up the back are decorative and cover a back zipper. This fully lined dress is made of a rayon/silk blend of velvet and taffeta and was made in France. This has a numbered Givenchy Nouvelle Boutique label and it is labeled a size 40 but please refer to the measurements for the best fit. I estimate it to be a modern day US size 12. BUST: 42" WAIST: 32" HIPS: 42" LENGTH from top of shoulders: 56" SHOULDERS from seam to seam across the back: 17" SLEEVES from shoulder seams: 24"
