About

Founded in 1938, the house of Nina Ricci is famed for its elegant, delicate haute couture and this ball gown is testament to the refinement of the house. Constructed in pale pink, hand-made silk lace edged with metallic Lurex thread, the gown features long sleeves and a full tulip style skirt. Decorative fabric-matched buttons run down the back and the cuffs, while a hand-pleated train of pale pink dupion silk falls from the back of the waist for a dramatic silhouette. This gown would make for an incredible wedding dress or option for a red carpet event.
