1980s Silver Accent Low Back Valentino Gown

This is all eighties and for the right girl will be a strong and amazing statement gown! The skirt on this is absolutely breathtaking and is why my eye gravitated to it. It is amazingly full with yards and yards of silk chiffon over a silk interior. Onto the chiffon of the skirt is a design using the same silver panne velvet so it shimmers as you move! The top has that strong eighties shape with string shoulder s and a plunging draped back. Lots of great finishing touches as one would expect from a Valentino gown. It was a tad to big on my mannequin so will sit better on a girl that matches its size.

Shoulders: 14.5"
Sleeves: 22"
Bust: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 15.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Bodice: 15"
Waist band: 6"
Skirt: 38" from waist to hem

The silver velvet shows creases at the elbow as shown. Otherwise it has no flaws. Presents wonderfully even with this since it actually picks up the gathering at the waist band and feels intentional! Shipped professionally dry cleaned
