1970s Jersey Jean Louis Dress & Sash

Jean Louis is the infamous designer who created that dress that Marilyn Monroe was said to have been sewn into when she sang Happy Birthday to JFK. He worked in the movies before starting his own label and its easy to see the sexy starlet influence in this dress. It's a definite statement maker and everything about it screams red carpet and sex. Liquid, draped golden toffee colored silk knit jersey drapes to perfection in this wrapped gown. It is cut on the bias so wraps and drapes to follow your every curve. The skirt is long and lean and the top blouses over. The wrapped styling allows the entire front ot look like you could step out of the dress at any moment but it is designed to stay in place. A mile long sash in the same fabric and with 13" pf silk fringe can be wrapped and ties a million ways - the styling possibilities are endless. It's all old Hollywood meets Studio 54, refined elegance, sexiness and class. Mint condition.
