Vintage 1970's Jacques Cassia Couture Yellow Jersey One-Shoulder Draped Dress

About the Item

A breathtaking and hard to find Jacques Cassia Couture vibrant yellow dress dating back to the late 1970's. Though his work has only recently begun to be appreciated, Lebanese designer Jacques Cassia was a familiar face among fashionable high-society back in the 1960's and 70's. His best-known work was a cross between Paco Rabanne and Halston: silk jersey maxi dresses with metal bustiers and revealing cutouts. This gorgeous gown is a wonderful example of the genius. The bodice has a complex pleated asymmetric one-shoulder with enamel detail in the same hue. I love the gold sequin waist-bow which really channels the disco vibe of this era. The draped skirting shows off a women's seductive shape while skimming the hips in such a flattering way. An iconic piece of wearable 1970's couture fashion history. Measurements Bust: 32-33 inches Waist: 25 inches Hips: up to 36 inches Total Length: 55 inches This Jacques Cassia Couture custom dress is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, holes or stains. Closes with both metal hooks and velcro. A rare designer investment piece that will only go up in value.

  • Vintage 1960's Gene Shelly Chartreuse Yellow Sequin Beaded Knit Cocktail Dress
    By Gene Shelley International Boutique, Gene Shelley
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Mid-century Gene Shelly designer garments are in a class of their own. They are always fully-sequined by hand and fit to flatter the figure. This early 1960's treasure has a fantastic abstract-deco design worked in, featuring iridescent-beadwork. The base is an ultra-soft chartreuse yellow wool-knit and the sequin work is done in the same hue. Just look at the detail pictures! Though the hourglass fit is rather seductive, the 3/4-length sleeves give it a balanced elegance that Gene Shelly is known for. I love the nipped-waist belted hourglass wiggle skirt! This is the type of garment celebrity vixens, like Marilyn Monroe, made infamous. Extraordinary and a rare find to be in such pristine condition. Measurements (The knit will allow stretch so you can safely add two inches to the below measurements) Bust: 34 inches Waist: 28 inches Hips: 36 inches Sleeve Length: 19 inches Total Length: 42 inches This vintage Gene...
