1977 Arnold Scaasi Couture Ombre Chiffon Long-Sleeve Illusion Gown & Vest Cape
In this gorgeous Arnold Scaasi designer gown ensemble, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern Haute-Couture. Arnold Scaasi was an acclaimed fashion designer who created gowns for such notable personalities as Joan Crawford, Lauren Bacall and Elizabeth Taylor. This rare show-stopper, from his 1977 collection, is a wonderful example of his pure genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; luxurious raspberry red to sapphire blue ombre silk chiffon. The bodice has lean, long illusion sleeves with chic slightly-puffed shoulders. I love the matching draped over vest cape which adds beautiful texture to the garment. The seductive nipped wist flows into a unique triple-layered skirt with side gathering. It has the perfect amount of drama without being so over-bearing. As Scaasi himself once said, "If a woman wears a Scaasi dress, she'll be noticed; that's the kind of dress to make an entrance in. The dress will be flattering and make you feel good." A timeless beauty that will work for any modern event. Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Waist:30 inches Hips:up to 44 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:58 inches This Arnold Scaasi Couture ensemble is in wonderful wearable condition with no stains or holes. Perfectly working back hand-set zipper in place. Only sign of age are some tiny holes to the fabric which are not noticeable when worn. Priced accordingly. Please message for detailed pictures.
