1980s Oscar de la Renta Vivid Pink Silk Wrap Strapless Dress w A Bright Floral Print

This is a beautiful dress by Oscar de la Renta that I love. It is made from a lightweight printed silk that has a pretty dot design worked into the silk. The dots have a different finish so that they catch the light in a very pretty way. The back drop of the silk is a bright vivid pink colour and then it has a pattern of bright colourful flowers and leafs screened onto it. The bodice of the dress is so pretty. It is gathered across the bust into a seam down the centre. Above that is a large soft bow made of the same silk. This gives the bust a little bit of detail without detracting from the simplicity of the design. The skirt cascades to the floor from the seam under the bust and has a sarong feel. It wraps over itself down the front so that when you move or sit you will get a glimpse of leg peeking out from the opening. I took a photo so you can see how it is open and simply lays over the fabric underneath. The silk chiffon is almost weightless and the entire dress weighs ounces. This gives it a fantastic feeling of airiness and lightness. It is a really lovely and pretty dress. It looks to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition

The dress is fully lined through the bodice in a pink silky rayon and the skirt is unlined. It closes with a back zipper. The ODLR tag was cut at some point in its history. Tagged vintage ODLR 6
