1980s Oscar de la Renta Black Gathered Back Crystal Button Dress

About

This dress has lots of those fabulous eighties elements mixed with classic Oscar touches that make it timeless. This really feels like it could be from the runways of today when we look at the handful of designers that are really delving into this look and feel. This one is of course an original eighties piece and in the best possible way. The main body of the dress is cut to hug the body like a second skin. The fabric here has been gathered from the neckline to the hem in soft drapes that meet at the inset front and back seams for added texture. Velvet straps curve over the shoulders and at the back there is matching band of velvet that runs down the center of the back. This velvet band is then accented with a series of flower shaped buttons detailed with crystal rhinestones to catch the light. At the very back hem there is a sexy little flounce of lace added for the perfect finishing touch. This one is for my smaller frames girls and is a tiny one. It would not fit my dress forms and has been photoed flat so on an actual body it will of course have more shape. Excellent condition. Fully lined with a black silky rayon and closes with a back zipper. Hand finishes. The buttons are decorative only. Bust: 15.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 11.5-12" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 16-17" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 36" from shoulder to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XXS-XS This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.

About Oscar De La Renta (Designer)

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
