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.
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.
