Vintage 1969 Rudi Gernreich Iconic Cross-Your-Heart Black Knit Maxi Dress w/Tags

About the Item

A fearless designer, Rudi Gernreich’s body conscious garments dazzled the fashion world with originality and vision. Gernreich held a futurist view of fashion that resulted in innovations such as using plastic in clothes and removing inner construction. This iconic black & white "cross your heart" maxi length dress is a perfect example of his genius. The garment has a white band on the shoulder straps crossing under the breasts and closing over the center back zipper. I love the inverted pleat at the center front and flattering a-line silhouette with hidden pockets. This rare garment is modern, comfortable and a fierce fashion statement! Measurements Bust:32 inches Hips:40 inches Total Length:56 inches This Rudi Gernreich designer dress is in excellent never-worn condition with no rips, stains or holes. The dress closes with a back zipper. This item is over 40 years old and still has store tags attached.

  • Vintage 1950's Madame Grès Haute Couture Sculpted Silk Back-Bow Dress & Jacket
    By Madame Gres
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Gorgeous and incredibly rare Madame Grès haute couture sculpted black silk dress ensemble dating back to the early 1950's. Madame Grès felt that the true job of the couturier was not to create a name for one's self, as many designers do, but to pay rigorous attention to the clothing. This stunning set has so much detail, you can tell it was made with loving devotion. The alluring bodice has a low-cut scoop neck with flattering short sleeves. My favorite designer element is the dramatic back bow with chic cut-out. The matching jacket has a shawl-like front with a stunning cropped back. I'd wear the jacket alone with other looks for a unique bolero option. The sculpted panel style skirting ,which looks incredibly hard to mold, reads so fresh to the modern eye...

  • Vintage 1979 Givenchy Haute-Couture Metallic Gold & Black Burnout Velvet Dress
    By Givenchy
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Givenchy, the name itself evokes glamour, refined elegance, simplicity and style. Givenchy's trademark of sculpted lines and luxurious fabrics make his work easily recognizable. This gorgeous cocktail dress, dating back to his 1979 collection, is a beautiful example of his brilliance. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; metallic gold and black graphic illusion burnout silk velvet. I adore the elegant slight-puff shoulder billow bodice with lean, long zipper-wrist sleeves. The five-inch long cummerbund nipped waist adds the perfect amount of drama to this timeless beauty. The a-line skirting, with flattering tiered ruffle detail, finishes this garment off with a perfect "femme fatale" vibe. As Givenchy said, "The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress." Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:36 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:40 inches This vintage Givenchy numbered...
