Galanos Rare Vintage 1950's Couture Full Sweep Silk Chiffon + Lace Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Three layers of paper-thin delicate silk chiffon practically float on top of the silk lining on this 1950's cocktail dress! The sheer quantity of silk in person is just breathtaking as the skirt swishes and sways with every step you take. This dress brings to life all the reasons for James Galanos's fame as a designer; luxurious fabrics, impeccable couture construction, and an unparalleled elegance in design.

The dress is fully lined in black silk and features rear metal zip closure which is secured by tiny snaps and hooks. The sweep is absolutely enormous and it feels like there is no end to the layers and layers of delicate chiffon.
