AHHHH! Donald Brooks does it again with this little black dress with a whole lot of character!
The dress is knee length, with long sleeves, and a plunging bowl neckline. The dress has an empire - like waist with stitching cutting across the bust for added structure. The back of the dress features a playful sweater - like closure with five large buttons. The neckline is adorned by an amazing chain of oversized rhinestones, giving it the appearance of a riviera necklace. The rhinestone chain is heavy, and shimmers brilliantly!
Donald Brooks had an extensive career in commercial fashion and costume design, his commercial work was dramatic and sensational, taking cues from his costume designs. He first worked for Townley Frocks in 1959, replacing the late, great Claire McCardell, before opening his own company in 1964. He later created a boutique line in 1971, and then closed his business entirely in 1973. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s Brooks designed under different manufacturing firms, in 1986 he created an evening wear line, and in 1990 he became a consultant at Ann Taylor.
Brooks also designed for stage and screen, and received Oscar nominations for best costume design in “The Cardinal” (1963), “Star!” (1968), and “Darling Lili” (1970).

Elegant knee length cocktail dress by Cristobal Balenciaga. This strapless black dress features a black body - skimming slip dress visible under the dress' top layer of lace. The layer of Important Riechers Marescot lace fits loosely on the body, and has an A - line silhouette with a skirt that widens towards the hem. The French couture lace is stunning, with a floral vine design that flows throughout the dress. The hem features a gentle, subdued scallop that can also be seen ruffled at the bust. Typical of Balenciaga, the dress features a great attention to detail, down to the structured girdle and bust. A gorgeous dress for those with impeccable style.
