Very Interesting 1950s Draped Taffeta Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This dress is Very well made and finely detailed from richly bodies silk. This is an avant-garde reinvention of the classic 'Little Black Dress.' Its bottom layer, revealed at the bust and neckline, is a smooth black fabric with large tonal polka dots in grey. This layer has wide straps and a scoop necline, revealing the collarbones and shoulders. This scoop neckline is echoed in the dress's over-layer, which falls in a deep, sweeping neckline which skims the sides of the bust and dips down as far as the ribs. This layer is a sheer, shimmering black and falls in an unbroken cascade from the shoulders, creating a wonderful, muted sheen over its folds and drapes. The hemline is asymmetrical, with the over-layer's point drawing the eye down the figure to the slim lines of the legs and ankles beneath. Despite its avant-garde styling, the choice of classic black and fine fabrics makes this dress elegant and sophisticated. It is the perfect choice for the fashion-forward lady!
