Spectacular shift dress by Norman Norell! The drama of this dress makes one feel as though it is a coat, with its large cuffed sleeves and large collar. The fabric is black silk with a nice hand. It also has a belt to cinch in the waist. It is a classy dress and a show stopper, whether it be day or night!
