1970s Silk Chiffon Giorgio Sant Angelo Caftan Dress

This late 1970s, perhaps early 80s dress is stunning. Its made of two layers of silk chiffon that have been screened with a vivid pink, cherry red, turquoise and sea blue stripe with all four colours swirling around each other in vertical rows. This instantly makes the wearer appear talker and leaner. The lightness of the fabric and the two layers over each other give it s carefree feel that perfectly combines high glamour with chic. The inner dress is more fitted with a simple tank strap bodice and long lean skirt. Over this is a more caftan feel layer that drapes over the inner bodice and skirt and flows to the floor. It comes with its wide tie belt that you can use to cinch in the waist for more shape, or if you wish to wear the dress so it has a more caftan vibe use the tie around the neck or as a head scarf! It's a stunning piece! Excellent condition.

Unlined - the inner dress serves as its own lining. Slips on with an elastic through the waist, Both layers are attached at the top of the shoulder and where the back inner tank meets the exterior fabric. A button at the back inner dress. The scarf/tie shows some thinning of the fabric. Its stable so has been left as found.
