1980s Vicky Tiel Backless Dotted Silk Chiffon Fitted Mini Dress
This dramatic little dress by Vicky Tiel is just fabulous. It is made up of a graphic black and white dot fabric that sits over an inner structured fitted base that is done in a solid black. This creates a play on the transparency of the different parts. The upper bodice has a plunging inner neckline and I love the curved set of this. Over this is a layer of the silk that is set higher in the front and then plunges at the back to leave it bare. The sleeves are also semi-transparent and are cut long and lean. To balance that, the waist nips in sharply and that is further accentuated by the gathered silk that sits at the waist and down over the top of the hips. The skirt is fitted and short under that. The perfect finish is the huge half bow that sits on one hip. Countless modern pieces right now are based on dresses just like this but this one is an original. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a black silky rayon and closes with a low back zipper. Very well constructed with the entire inner bodice shaped, boned and fitted. Each sleeve closes with a silk covered button and loop at its cuff.
