1970s Pauline Trigere Silk & Lame Gown

A spectacular metallic threaded gown by the great American designer Pauline Trigere! This is an extraordinary piece that beautifully combines cut and exquisite fabric. Made of tissue thin, almost weightless silk chiffon that has that spectacular dots of gold lame thread woven though the silk. From top to bottom fine gold thread gives it a subtle shimmer when you move. It has a plunged front with interesting seam work and the sleeves are narrowed in at the cuff and are fuller near the shoulder! The skirt is beautifully full and flows to the floor. A matching light silk chiffon jacket can be worn with the gown if you wish. A muted pastel hued pattern is screened onto the gown from head to toe. Excellent, seemingly unworn condition. Item# DD916
