1970s Numbered Ted Lapidus Dress

Great late seventies, early eighties Lapidus dress that marries the glitzy Studio 54 effect with the craze for menswear through the great velvet accented tuxedo feeling collar. The dress is made of a black silk chiffon with metallic black threading woven through the fabric in a snakeskin pattern. It is cut loose and easy and has a matching fabric belt so you can cinch in the waist The front buttons entirely open so it can be made to plunge or show as much leg as you wish. I love the contrast the matte back collar gives. Subtle yet striking and would be amazing to style - endless possibilities! Excellent condition. Item# DD850
