1990s Oscar De La Renta Silk Ruffle Dress

This 90s Oscar de la Renta cocktail dress is absolutely a stunner! Made entirely of silk chiffon is weighs almost nothing so when on feels like a dream! Layers of silk make up the body and in between the outermost and innermost is a layer of nude silk. This gives the body of the dress extra depth and picks up the slight pattern that runs through the top layer of silk. The sleeves and upper shoulder are left semi-sheer and the waist is highlight with a pretty black ribbon. The same ribbon detail sits just above each ruffled area on the sleeve. At the back they dress has an open slit that runs from the back of the neck to the zipper at the waist. The wow factor of this piece is definitely the exorbitant use of ruffles on the sleeves and skirt. When you look closely you see that each ruffle is set and placed by hand! They are set vertically and the resulting effect is amazing! The overlong sleeves and styling are very dramatic and on a real girl will work and present even better then how it has photoed on a mannequin! Excellent condition.

The main body of the dress is made of three fine layers of silk chiffon. Two black layers with a nude one in the middle. It closes with a hidden set low zipper and there is a hook & eye at the back of the neck.
