1960s Sarmi Red Velvet Evening Dress w/ Sheer White Silk Skirt Accent


Striking dark burgundy velvet evening dress by Sarmi. The dress is sleeveless, has a high jewel neckline, and a high, left-to-right sloping waistline. The highest tip of the waistline is marked by a large velvet bow. The dress has a fabulous slit in the skirt, giving way to a long, gathered white silk panel. Beautiful.


Italian Count -and fabulous fashion designer- Ferdinando Sarmi, was known for his extravagant textiles and materials, creating sumptuous evening wear and swanky day wear. He got his start in 1951 working for Elizabeth Arden, and in 1959 Sarmi opened his own eponymous label that would last until the 1970s.
