1980s Couture Red Silk Billowing Sleeve Dress
This 1980s 100% silk red dress has unfortunately lost its label, but seems to be true couture with the appearance of being entirely hand sewn and a style very reminiscent of high fashion couture from the mid 1980s. It has a dramatic bow with hand-rolled edges at the front and billowing sheer sleeves, both of silk chiffon. The body is lined in silk, and does up the back with a YKK zipper. There are two buttons on each cuff, all gold with half-red enamel and half-rhinestone encrusting. It is in excellent condition; one rhinestone is missing on three of the cuff buttons, but this is only noticeable under close inspection. It has been professionally dry-cleaned and is ready to wear.
