Valentino 1960s costume made silk lilac kaftan dress flower embellished train

About the Item

Spectacular vintage 1960s Valentino design lilac silk chiffon kaftan dress. This dress is stunning and would make an amazing wedding piece for the bride looking for a non-traditional choice or as an alternative dress in a more extended wedding celebration. The incredible Valentino dress was executed custom-made around 1969 for a bride by Indira Antwerp who was a multi-brand store selling Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, and many more high-end labels. It was a custom in those days to have special pieces made for occasions or events with the designer's permission using their fabrics and patterns. I've seen pictures of this incredible bride wearing the dress, she covered her hair with the top layer kaftan/dress to start her journey. The top layer kaftan/dress is attached to the underlayer dress, the bride removed the kaftan further/later in the evening using this as a scarf and sometimes holding the kaftan as a long train. Size 36/38 - Attached labels: Indira & Tessuto Valentino Atelier Measurements are taken flat: Underdress Bust 16,5inch/42cm(x2) - Waist 13,5inch/34cm(x2) Excellent condition. Please feel free to ask us any questions regarding this dress, we are here to help.
