1972 Loris Azzaro Couture Sequin Gown

The silk chiffon covered dropped back on this gown is almost scandalous it drops so low. What the photos can't convey is how fine the silk is and the suppleness of the gown since all the sequins are done by hand onto that silk backdrop.  It is a good generous size which is unusual sometimes in couture. It is cut like a long lean column so that the sexuality of the dress is not because it fits your every curve but that it skims over them and the sheer panels at the back and around the neck and upper bodice suggest what lies underneath. I love how the sequins are applied in a flame design around bust. It is very beautiful and once seen in person you instantly understand that it was very expensive and the work is just exquisite. It was a touch to big on my mannequin and I did not want to overly pin it so on a real girl of the proper size it will fit over the body better. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a high grade fine black tissue silk with hand placed and sewn silk chiffon borders placed over the edges where the sequins fold over inside the interior. This extra step is done so that no sequin edge inadvertently rub on the wearer. All hand work inside. Closes with a hand set, fine metal zipper. 21" slit up on side
