Paul-Louis Orrier Black Silk Chiffon One Sleeve Demi Couture Gown 1980s

About

Paul-Louis Orrier black silk chiffon one sleeve demi couture gown from the early 1980s. Orrier may be better known for his 80s poof and glitter confections, but this dress done in silk chiffon shows command of a notoriously difficult to work with fabric, silk chiffon, the draping is an inspiration from another more glamorous time. When I first saw this dress I thought it must be from the 1940s or 50s, I was surprised to see the label, it's from early 1980s! Classic strapless gown, a full length sheath of black silk chiffon that is lined in black silk. The dress has a single shoulder drape on the left side which is attached at the upper bodice front, acting as a sort of shoulder piece, at the back it drapes dramatically to the right side where the drape is finished in a deep quilted, button and loop closure cuff. The dress dips low in the back, there are long draped panels at either side of the center waist. The dress closes with hooks and eyes and a zipper at the back. Fully lined, the bodice is boned. Fits like a size 4. In excellent wearable condition. All our clothing is dry cleaned and inspected for condition and is ready to wear. Any condition issues will be noted. For visual comparison our mannequin is a size 4. Please check the measurements provided below and compare with your own measurements for the best possible fit!
