DRAMATIC....Hand-Painted..Silk Velvet jumper style long straight cut gown...sleeveless and OPEN to below waist!!..By DONNA HAAG New York a specialty designer who owned her own design company in New York. It was started in the early 1990's. I searched the internet for news of her collections and could only find information on her collection until 2006. I assume she is no longer in business.
There are no fiber content tags or size on gown...but the velvet feels like silk. The black lining does also, but could be polyester satin.
The hand-painted cabbage flowers are a bright wine and violet with green leaves. The flowers have a texture to them from the paint.
This luxurious hand painted silk velvet jumper style gown is lined with black silk. The band around the shoulder and the hem appear to be hand stitched. Judging from her past designs I estimate that this dress cost between $1500.00 to $2,000 at retail. The gown does not show any signs of wear.
Since the cut is so dramatic most would wear a long sleeved stretch shirt; black or violet lace would be most dramatic!
Here are the measurements......
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER...13.5"
SIDE SLEEVE SLITS...16"
