1970s White John Kloss Goddess Gown

Sexy nylon gown by the great John Kloss who was an Ossie Clark contemporary and did mainly lingerie pieces with a few draped goddess jersey gowns thrown in for good measure. I love his work. He deliberately chose good weight and quality nylons that held the color well and would drape exactly as he wished. This white goddess feel gown is simply cut and is done in a pristine white nylon. It has a drop dead sexy front plunge and Grecian feel elastic gathers under the bust and at the waist. The skirt has yards and yards of fabric and cascades out from there. It is semi sheer but could be worn out as a dress with nude undergarments or clever styling. Truly a beauty and in fantastic condition!
