Incredible 1980s Green & Gold Silk Metallic Ungaro Dress

About

If you have been looking for a statement dress for the season look no further then this incredible Ungaro dress that is absolutely amazing. That dramatic color is the first thing you see - it's an amazing combination of green and gold and the metallic thread makes it shimmer and glint in the light from bodice to hem. The fabric is quite light in weight so despite the elaborate construction the dress is not heavy to wear but rather, feels amazing on the body. The entire torso of the dress is gathered and fitted around the body with body hugging, hand placed and gathered folds. This was an Ungaro signature and really made his pieces flattering once on. The gathered detailing extends all the way down the torso and past the waist to hug the hips and underneath the skirt it sits like a mini dress. Big fabric rosettes adorn the bodice and hip. The skirt is attached over the inner under dress and wraps the hips all the way around and then floats to the floor on an angle. The fabric here is knife pleated and these falls out like a sculpted fan over the legs. The side not open has extra panels of fabric at its middle so no matter what angle you are seen by there is some interesting element. Excellent condition. Fully lined in a green silk and closes with a side zipper. The bodice is lightly boned. Tagged a vintage Ungaro 8.
