About

The perfect dress to have in your wardrobe, this chic LBD from Frank Tignino will take you many places. In black wool crepe, the dress has an inverted V empire shape with a pleated satin sash that terminates in a wide bow at the back, where a deep plunge adds a dramatic aspect to the deceptive simplicity of the design. Broad cap sleeves with shoulder pads and tucking at the bust are features of the bodice, which tops a long, slim skirt with back slit.

The interior is finished to perfection, a hallmark of Tignino's work, which is known for attention to detail and hand finishing. Fully lined. Approximate size 8-10; please see measurements below.
