From American Couturier house of Jerry Silverman by Shannon Rogers. One piece, sleeveless dress of heavy silk satin, fully lined in silky polyester. Center back zipper, diagonal cut bodice which is darted. The front bodice has a "V" silhouette. The back neck is high.
Wide set in wast line. The bodice is cut with a diagonal design to perfectly match the lines of the mock wrap skirt. The wide set-in cummerbund gives a smooth, crisp fit. The skirt is attached to the cummerbund at the natural waist line. There are soft gathers at the waist both front and back.
There is a center back hidden zipper for closure. The dress is fully lined in silk and has buckram interlining to hold the silhouette in place but is not stiff.
It could have been custom made for Kate Middleton! It is fabulous.
The color is RICH, TRUE, GREEN. It is brilliant!
This stunning dress has been dry cleaned. Fabulous result! No holes, weak seams or stains There is NO DISCOLORATION or odor.
I found two tiny pin marks at one side, on the cummerbund, where I believe, a brooch was worn.
This dress is in ABOVE EXCELLENT vintage condition.
