1980s Multi-Length Genny Puffed Bubble Skirt Dress

This is a stunning little dress and I believe the label lands it right after the time period when Gianni Versace was designing for the house. I don't think this particular label was from his time period so the dress has been priced on its own merit without the Versace influence. It does have elements that he later used so if this was not done by him it was most certainly influenced by his time there. It is made of a fine black crepe with an interesting graphic white print over its surface. The bodice is cut loose and easy with a wide cut through the rounded shoulders. The skirt is very interesting with a bubble cut that is puffed and brought in to float over a more fitted band at the hem. This allows you to wear it loose and longer or to use the band to pull it up and around the upper though or hip to create a variety of lengths from mid-though to micro mini. Very innovative. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Fully lined in black silky rayon and closes at the back with a hidden set zipper. The dress closes with a back zipper.
