f1971-72 Georgio di Sant'angelo Medieval Dress

From the Fall 1971-72 collection that took its inspiration from the Medieval gowns in terms of cut and then were spun into fabulous these fabulous dress! Sant' Angelo was the winner of two Coty Awards and two Council of Fashion Designers of America honors and was known for his innovation and pioneering use of stretch fabrics. This is an amazing maxi dress that showcases his love for color and that nod to using fabrics that were up to this point in time, largely not used. Made of a what is almost a fleeced T-shirt material  with a bit of a stretch it is the most deliciously comfortable thing to wear. His signature contrasting piping finishes the neck and pattern is masterfully used in layers and screened tiers to showcase the cut. The sleeves are amazing two tiers of fabric that sit over each other and they are cut wide and full. The skirt also falls in two tiers of fabric with a ruffle finish and a sexy front slit. Sant' Angelo once said, "I am not a fashion designer but an artist who works in fashion engineer of color and form" This gown shows us how true that statement. A similar gown resides in The Met collection! Excellent condition and a rare, highly collectible piece.
