Fall 1990 Azzedine Alaia Low Scooped Fitted Knit Dress
This amazing little Azzedne Alaia black knit dress is from his Fall 1990 collection. It is made from one of his signature stretch knits that was made to mold to the body like a second skin and exaggerate every curve. It instantly sucks some parts in and emphasizes other and is quite genius in its cut and design. The neckline is scooped low and is set very wide on a curved line that shows off a girls cleavage to full advantage. You can see how it would sit on a body on the reference photo I found from a 1990 Vogue editorial. The dress in that photo was worn by Christy Turlington and is a version of the dress in white with the same neckline but a fuller skirt. On our version, the dress is fitted from shoulder to hem. The seaming on the dress further exaggerates the curves and give it an hourglass feel. At the back the seaming is curved to follow up and around the butt. Each sleeve is cut lean and long. It is sexy as hell. Excellent condition.
The dress is unlined and slips on to wear. Tagged a vintage Alaia medium. The fabric does have stretch
