Holly's Harp Tiered Black Silk Jersey Cocktail Dress, C.1980

US$55028% Off


Holly Harp was a California based designer who started her career in the 1960's creating ethereal clothing based on vintage inspiration often referred to as a 'rich hippie' look. Her designs evolved in the 1970's and 1980's to include a glamorous sophistication influenced by 1930's sinuous silhouettes. This C.1980 black silk jersey cocktail dress is expertly layered with diagonal tiers to create a draped design that beautifully flatters the feminine form. It features pullover construction with an optional coordinating sash. This design is truly timeless and can stand alone or be the perfect backdrop for a great piece of jewelry or a fabulous shoe. Very good vintage condition. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS Marked a size 'S' for Small and best fits U.S. sizes 4 - 6 with attention to the following measurements taken without sashing or stretching though there is plenty of 'give' to the jersey fabric. For visual reference, the mannequin in the photographs is a size 4.
