Paco Rabanne Velvet and Lace Dress - 1970s

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Stylish Paco Rabanne Velvet and Lace Dress. This great looking dress was made, we believe, as a prototype in the late 70s, early 80s. In purple velvet and lace it a very clever panel technique that gives a beautiful and sexy silhouette. This strapless dress (structured bust) with a side zipper features a back slit with sparkly studs. Fully lined. Size label is missing - we recommend a guideline of size 6 UK (please refer to conversion chart for further details) – it was too small for the mannequin, which made it impossible to close the zipper (hence the few photos). This is an elegant and flirty dress.
