1970's Rappi Watercolor Blue Green Abstract Print Silk Ruched Goddess Maxi Dress



Rappi was a talented Viennese-born woman named Syd Rappaport who made a name for herself with glamorous formal wear which was much beloved by debutantes with a particular eye for unique style. This breathtaking 1970's sculpted goddess gown is fashioned from couture quality silk-chiffon. The watercolor abstract print in shades of blue and green have a lifelike 3-dimensional quality. The seductive bodice has a thin-strap plunge with hand-crafted ruching. The gown follows an easy-to-wear silhouette without being overtly tight or garish. I love the yards and yards of draped silk-chiffon skirting which totally channels Grecian glamour. This dress is vibrant, extremely well-made and totally unforgettable! Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:up to 37 inches Total Length:57 inches This vintage Rappi designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back-zipper. This garment is over 40 years old and is truly exquisite!
