Haute Couture Christian Lacroix Black Silk Evening Gown One Shoulder Rare XS

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This fabulous haute couture evening gown was made by Christian Lacroix, most likely in the early 1980s. Made from what we believe is a fine silk crepe (no content label), this piece fastens wrap style with a series of hooks and snaps by way of its corset at the bodice. There's silk taffeta and sheer ruffles at the collar and the skirt falls asymmetrically to the knee. In excellent condition with minimal signs of prior wear. No size tag but we're estimating this as a modern size XS, based on these measurements, taken flat and doubled: bust - 32in, waist - 24in, hips - 34in, length - 53in, single sleeve length - 24in. Tagged Christian Lacroix and numbered 3209.
