1980s Donna Karan Silver One Shoulder Gown

Donna Karan can really knock it out of the park sometimes and this one is a home run. The fabric is a silver toned silk organza that floats over a shorter sexy inner dress whose exterior is the same fabric. This gives it dimension and depth and rally plays on the texture of the fabric. It is a classic one shoulder silhouette with the Goddess edge created by the draped overlay. I have styled it so you can get an idea of the amount of fabric that flows from the shoulder and trails well past the hem in two panels - one from the front and one from the back. When actually on these move around the body much more as they are light and will respond to the wearers movements. Very chic. Excellent condition.

The inner dress is fully lined in a matching pale grey silk chiffon. It closes with a side zipper. It's all bias cut
