1980s Pierre Cardin Haute Couture Fuschia Ruffled Evening Gown

Pierre Cardin


Beyond fantastic..... is this RARE Pierre Cardin fuchsia ruffled silk taffeta long sleeve gown. This runway piece, designed in the early 1980's, was a show stopper at the Ebony Fashion Fair. Since its unveiling, the gown has lived amongst the gowns in the collection of Mrs. Johnson -the creator of the historic fair- and was never worn again. Gorgeous deep pink with layers and layers of billowing, pleated fabric add extre depth, dimension, and cause for discussion discussion! Gorgeous ribbon at high neckline frames the face perfectly. The gown fastens via a back zipper, two hook-and-eyes and a snap closure. Unbelievable piece by Pierre Cardin, created in the Post Modern era.

Modern size 2, touches the floor on a 5'8" fit model w/o heels.
