About

Gai Mattiolo Couture Black Jersey Evening Dress with Mesh Insert Panel, 1990s Estimated Size: UK 8-10/ US 4-6/ EU 36-38. Please check measurements. Bust - 34” / 86cm Waist - 26” / 66cm Hips - 36” / 91cm Length (Shoulder to Hem) - 49” / 125cm Condition: Very good vintage Condition - 2 missing rhinestones to top buckle, only noticeable upon close inspection. No noticeable stains, holes or tears. Sleeves appear to have been removed (pictured) A fabulous vintage evening dress from the 90s by luxury Italian designer, Gai Mattiolo. Gai Mattiolo was known for his work with the supermodels and dressed the likes of Diana Ross, Mariah Carey, Sharon Stone and many others. He is credited with coining the term pret-a-couture, mixing the spirit and artisanal luxury of couture with a more accessible appeal. This dress is a great example of that, in a luxurious black jersey with rhinestone details at the waist bordering a sheer, mesh panel which reveals the waist. This gives an unsual, current take on an evening dress whilst also giving a glamorous, classy sex appeal. Would be perfect for a party. - Back zipper Materials: Unlabelled; feels like rayon jersey or similar.
