1970s Givenchy One Shoulder Black Silk Cocktail Dress

This little black dress is a beauty. It is just exceptional and the more details you start to notice the more you love it. The design is a one shoulder, fitted silhouette that is all tiered ruffles that highlight that design. The bodice is fitted to the bust and curves up and over the shoulder. A ruffled edge circles the neckline and another ruffle curves around the arm opening on the side of the one shoulder.The waist nips in and there is a long tie that you can use to cinch it in further. The skirt is cut so it looks like it wraps around you a ruffle sweeps down the front edge and all around the ham. The skirt is set into the waist with soft gathers so it has a pretty fullness. The fabric is fabulous and is almost semi-transparent and has a "lace" feel, even though it is not lace. It is light and pretty and fabulous. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a high grade black silk. It closes with side zipper and has its matching fabric belt.
