This absolutely stunning 1980's Givenchy statement evening gown. This avant garde dress has a pleated structural flounce at the hemline with velvet and taffeta panels that almost form a balloon hem. It also has a large black taffeta bow at the neckline. The sleeves have zippers at the wrists, and the beautiful rhinestone buttons up the back are decorative and cover a back zipper.
This fully lined dress is made of a rayon/silk blend of velvet and taffeta and was made in France. It was originally purchased from I. Magnin, and retains the label. This has a numbered Givenchy Nouvelle Boutique label and it is labeled a size 40 but please refer to the measurements for the best fit. I estimate it to be a modern day US size 12.
LENGTH from top of shoulders: 56"
