1970s Givenchy Silk Floral Maxi Dress

I love color and the design, the color, the workmanship - everything about this dress is perfect and wonderful! The fabric is a almost sheer finely woven silk gazar that has a hand screened, floral print. It is amazing! Once you get past the sheer brilliance of the color and print you begin to notice the workmanship that has gone into constructing this. A full inner dress is built with the semi sheer overlay over it. I love the bit of dimension this gives to the dress and the way it is entirely covered and yet still has an innocent sexiness to it. The collar is high and the sleeves are quite full. The fabric has just a touch of starchiness to it so holds the full shape seen in the sleeves and the cut off the skirt. Really a work of art and feels very fresh and today when you think of the current runways and what we have seen. Mint condition!
