Vintage 1970's-80's Exquisite Red Silk Hanae Mori Evening Dress
LABEL: White Label with black Japanese script---Hanae Mori. There is a smaller label which reads: out cloth 100% silk, Lining, Made in Japan, Dry Cleaning Only
CONDITION: Excellent There are several small spots on the front of the dress, but because of the way the dress drapes some are not noticeable at all----only when the dress is flattened and one purposely looks for the spots can they be seen. I believe these small areas could be removed by a very good professional cleaner. There is one tiny spot on the upper left right under the smocking and again with the print it is not obvious. On the draped collar it appears that someone probably wore a brooch as there are approximately 5 tiny pin holes--not noticeable because of the way the collar drapes. I, also, detected a very slight pull in the silk thread on the front bodice. None of these issues in any way detract from the beauty of this garment. But feel free to ask any further questions concerning condition.
SIZE: Garment has a size 8 tag and I think that it is a fairly true size 8 as that is my size and this dress would fit me! This dress is a "shift" style so keep in mind it is not a fitted or tailored style. Loose fitting! The smocked yoke is approx. 14 ½" across and the dress laying flat is 44" around.
BUST: 48" + because of the fullness of garment
SHOULDERS: 14 ½"
