1980s Lillie Rubin Fur Shoulder Gown

Dramatic is an understatement when it comes to this gown! This is the epitome of that over the top eighties decadence and that silhouette of a strong upper body paired with narrowing through the hips. Made of a double layer of stretch jersey in an ink black, the fabric drapes over the body and is set on the bias. The sleeves taper to skinny cuffs and are wide where they come out from the bodice. Though It is of course those two huge rings of dyed black fox fur that ring each shoulder and down and around the sleeve right to the waist where all the drama is created! The neck softly drapes at the front and then a shocking and daring open keyhole from neck to waist finish the back. Not for the faint of heart! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Lined in the same jersey as the exterior. It closes with a hand set zipper at the low back and buttons at the back of the neck. There is a slit at the middle back of the skirt so you can walk. Padded shoulders that could be removed if you wish.
