1960s Guy Laroche Black Empire Waist Evening Dress

Guy Laroche


Simply Sublime and Beautiful empire waist gown by Guy Laroche! The black maxi dress is sleeveless with a high scoop neck. The dress features a beautiful cluster of black rhinestones and Rock beads centered on the front of the dress between the bust line and the waist line. Fabric flows freely from the front of the dress, gathering under the dazzling cluster. There is a petaled slit in the front of the dress, revealing an under-skirt like second layer. The dress is lined and has a double closure, snaps for the lining and a zipper for the exterior fabric.

The dress was designed by Guy Laroche and fabricated by Maria Carine, a French couturier. Carine worked with many designers and design houses throughout her career, including Jaques Heim, Lanvin - Castillo, and Jean Dresses.

We see this gown and think Mrs. Robinson in her earlier years!
