1980s Loris Azzaro Hot Pink Silk Taffeta Strapless Mini Dress w Bustle Back
Loris Azzaro founded his label in 1967 and quickly was dressing women like Raquel Welch, , Brigette Bardot, Tina Turner, Liza Minnelli, Sophia Loren, Marisa Berenson and many, many more. His label gained international recognition known for his bright, clear color choices, ornate beading and daring cut-outs. He once stated; "When a woman has found her style, she should stick to it. We forget too often that it is the dress that must serve the woman and not the opposite."
Here he takes the drama of pink to new heights with this bold and sexy mini dress from his Boutique label. The fabric choice is a vivid pink silk taffeta that holds the shape perfectly and helps to give the dress its structure. It is set in soft horizontal gathers that run from top to bottom of the dress and are lightly caught up down the center front and with an actual seam at the back. The neckline is strapless and formed into an exaggerated sweetheart that plunges in the center. The waist nips in beneath this and then the skirt hugs the hips and ends in a mini length. At the back is a modified bustle created with three panels of the same fabric that are almost like large half bows set on top of each other. They are set onto the back starting just under the low back and have inner netting to help give them a bit of pouf and shape. The dress is stunning on and pure unadulterated drama. I love it. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a pink silk and closes at the back with a painted metal and nylon zipper. The bodice is boned and the back bustle panels have in inner lining of netting for shape and snap into place over the zipper. Hand finishes.
