Nina Ricci High Art--Enough Said.... From the catwalk of the Historic Ebony Fashion Fair hails this wearable high Nina Ricci Couture evening ensemble. In our 30 plus years of fashion collecting we have seen very few, if any, pieces of this quality, beauty, and wearabllity! This ensemble is true to couture fashion with its use of magnificent lace, silk, and other natural fibers. Boning in all of the rights places add to the structure of this wonderful work of art. The detail work and beauty in its form and stitch is apparent throughout. The bodice boasts elegant lace and flairs from a high in front to low in back. The lace covered bodice is beautifully scalloped along its edges. The bodice dips at the breast bone for a sultry look whilst the lace allows for a bit of innocence amidst this striking red piece of art! Bodice and skirt have zippered back closures.

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.
