Vintage 1980's Floral Silk Dress Designed by Yolanda and Sold at I.Magnin
This particular dress is typical of the 1980's with batwing sleeves and drop shoulder seams. The beautiful silk used for this garment is done in shades of warm cocoa brown with the most wonderful Orchid design...I'm not going to attempt to explain it, as I feel the photos will do a much better job than I could. This design puts me in mind of a fine watercolor splashed across a canvas of billowy silk. The stand up collar is gathered and fastened at the back with three fabric covered buttons. The is a nylon zipper closure at the back of the dress. All seams are beautifully finished as would be the case with any quality garment. The dress can be worn with or without the wide sash which is made from the same fine silk that the dress is made from. This is a dress that you will not see yourself in, coming and going, for sure! Yolanda's dresses retail in boutiques for thousands of dollars....here is your chance to own a splendid dress designed by Yolanda and sold at I. Magnin for a fraction of the original cost and still enjoy the beauty and quality of her work. I own several of Yolanda's dresses, but this by far, is the most exquisite!
I can find no visible flaws. This dress appears to have been worn very gently.
