This fun and fantastic 1960's dress is one of Parnis's greatest works. (Worth seeing in person as pictures do not do the dress justice) Mrs.Couture staff is fighting over which model/actress will purchase this dress. Is it you? Parnis blends beautiful materials, such as taffeta and chiffon, used informal gowns with an extremely vibrant pint of white, pinks and reds in a mini dress! She also uses ruffle, often seen as conservative during the early sixties but my adding loose length to the Ruffle detail, she gives us a hint of the seventies carefree ruffle to come in the following decade. She places the ruffle at the high neckline, sleeve hems and to the skirt for additional volume. Attached full slip underneath the sheer taffeta printed fabric. Detachable coordinating fabric sash that is able to be tied at the waist. Dress closes in back with both a button (on sheer layer) and a zipper, hook-n-eye (on slip).
Modern US size 0-2 Skirt seam allowance can be let out 1/2 of inch
Hem can be lengthened 2 1/2 inches

Check out this fantastically designed evening dress from Zandra Rhodes! It features a curvaceous body and high neck adorned with a clever print of gold chains draping around. The sketched Trompe l'oeil effect negates thoughts of deciding what jewelry to wear with your dress. More printed details can be found wrapped around the wrist which are then met with gold buttons. The back of the dress is completely buttoned. Its sleeves are slim and fall just at the wrist.
One thing is for sure, this dress is a great way to avoid mulling over what jewelry to wear out!

Stunning black silk cocktail dress by Bob Mackie. The dress falls at the knee, has long batwing sleeves with a narrow cuff, a plunging V - neckline, and a loose pencil skirt. The dress has a cinched waist accented by a wide lace band over a peach base. The band features multifaceted rhinestone accents. The dress gathers in the front, creating pleats in the skirt, and at the shoulders, adding a bit of a slinkiness to the bodice. The dress has a bit of 1990s - does - Edwardian flair, with its feminine silhouette, gentle pleats, and gorgeous flourishes.
