Early 1990s Carolina Herrera Sample Dress & Coat

It is always great to have a sample by a designer and this Carolina Herrera spring dress and coat set is so lovely that it is a real treat to have! The dress is fitted and simple and the coat is also a simple and chic cut. What makes it stand out is that amazing rose print. The vibrant pops of red on the white backdrop is eye catching and beautiful. She always makes clothes that are appropriate and yet feminine and this set exemplifies that aesthetic. So versatile too since you can wear separate or together. Excellent condition.

Both pieces are fully lined in a white silk with hand finishes. The dress closes with a back zipper and the coat buttons to close. Pockets on the front of the coat. There is a slight make-up line inside the front collar of the dress but it is not seen when on. Otherwise the white is vibrant and the colors true.
