1980s Black Silk Satin Vicky Tiel Strapless Dress

Vicky Tiel is somewhat in the spotlight these days since a book has come out by her giving the scoop on her adventures back in the heyday of her design house. This dress is from that time period and it is a beauty. Cut in that classic Vicky Tiel silhouette that combines sexy with strong and edgy, it is strapless and heavily hand draped though the bodice and torso to create gorgeous gathers that flatter the body underneath and creates curves. This tops a short and sexy fitted skirt and the entire dress is made of a luxurious black silk satin. The inside is corseted and boned so the dress hugs you in and creates curves whether they are there naturally or not. Lined in silk and lots of hand finishes - it is really an outstanding piece. Excellent condition

Fully lined in black silk, it closes at the side with a painted metal zipper. The inside construction is amazing with a attached grosgrain ribbon that hooks around the waistline inside so the dress sits perfectly and a boning through the bodice.

Waist: 14" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: 19" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
