1980s Oscar De La Renta Silk Ball Gown Skirt

This incredible ball gown skirt from Oscar de la Renta has never been worn and is just perfect. Made of a deep burgundy silk taffeta is it incredibly versatile as an evening piece - you could potentially pair it with anything from a simple white tee to an extravagant couture piece. Supermodel length and with built in underskirts that give it that amazing fullness. The waist nips in and the skirts flounce around the wearer in the most dramatic way. The construction is immaculate - the built in underskirts are all encased within the outer silk layer and the inner silk lining so it feel shockingly easy to wear when on. Excellent, still has original tags on condition

Fully lined in a silk organza dyed to match the exterior. Inside the outer and inner layers are built in layers of tulle for volume. Closes with flat hook & eye at the waist and the side where it closes has a pocket. Original tags still on the garment. Tagged a vintage ODLR size 4 but please check actual measurements.
