Vintage 1968 Arnold Scaasi Couture Metallic Paisley Silk Long-Sleeve Gown & Wrap



In this gorgeous Arnold Scaasi designer gown, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern haute couture. Arnold Scaasi was an acclaimed fashion designer who created gowns for such notable personalities as Joan Crawford, Lauren Bacall and Elizabeth Taylor. This rare show-stopper, from his 1968 collection, is a wonderful example of his pure genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; luxurious metallic gold and purple paisley-motif textured silk. The bodice has chic lean, long sleeves with button detailing. I love the versatile matching shawl-wrap which adds beautiful texture to the garment. The column skirting, with side slit, has a perfect amount of drama without being so over-bearing. As Scaasi himself once said, "If a woman wears a Scaasi dress, she'll be noticed; that's the kind of dress to make an entrance in. The dress will be flattering and make you feel good." A timeless beauty that will work for any modern event. Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Waist:32 inches Hips:up to 41 inches Sleeve Length:23 inches Total Length:58 inches This rare Arnold Scaasi Couture ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Fully-lined and perfectly working back hand-set zipper in place. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
