I wasn't able to find much info on this designer except that he was working in the 1980's. This dress is made of 100% silk and has a drop waist and long sleeves. The bottom third of the dress has three black tiers. The upper part has a very abstract design in red, blue, yellow green and white. To the right of center is an 8"zipper. The right side, which has attached ties to be tied into a bow, crosses over the left and closes with a tab in bar clasp. Below the clasp are two covered buttons that are for decoration only. The sleeves have 4" zippers. Sleeves are slightly gathered at the top. There are loosely sewn thin stiff shoulder pads that would be very easy to remove. It is a European size 42 which is the equivalent of a US size 8. The flat measurements are as follows: Armpit to armpit 36", Waist 34", Hips up to 38", Sleeve length from shoulder seam 23". Around the bottom of the sleeves measures 7" when zipped. Length from back of neck 41.50" and Across back of shoulders 15.50". Excellent condition with great details.
