1970s Embroidered White Rayon Crepe Tassel Jumpsuit
This 1970s Moroccan-inspired palazzo jumpsuit is by American designer, Richard Assatly. Assatly started his career in the '60s working at Seventh Avenue companies, such as Pat Sandler and Originala. He went on to create his own namesake label in the 1970s before starting at Anne Klein II in the 1980s, where he worked until he sadly passed away in 1993 at age 49.
"His clothes had a real modern edge," said Donna Karan, a longtime friend. "He followed the general direction of fashion, but he gave his interpretations a special twist. Basically, he was a tailor -- he made beautiful suits -- and he was able to translate this tailoring skill into dresses that were severe but sexy."
This jumpsuit is made from thin white rayon crepe with white embroidery on the bodice and arms. It has a seductive plunge neck with two ties, an elastic waist, and comes with the original beaded tassel rope belt.
It's in excellent condition, has been professionally dry-cleaned and is ready to wear.
