1970s Victor Costa Raspberry Colored Jersey Maxi Dress

Victor Costa was particularly great at taking high end designs and making versions that were more affordable but still of a really good quality. His earlier pieces especially seem to stand up to time exceptionally well. This particular dress is a great example of just that. I love jersey dresses from the seventies and this is a great one. It is made from a solid raspberry colored jersey that drapes well and moves with you. It has long, lean lines and a fantastic shape. The front plunges and seaming details highlights the bodice. It has a sleek, fitted shape through the waist that tops a skirt made form yards and yards of fabric. With all that fabric and the bias cut feel of the jersey, you really get a tremendous amount of movement. Add to that the brilliant color and the dress is really a stand out piece. It is very chic and very Studio 54. The original tie belt is present that allows you to cinch in the waist or you can get clever and use it as a head piece. Excellent condition

Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Original tie belt. The fabric has some stretch.
