1980s Vicky Tiel Couture Fine Navy Net Draped Corset Dress

Vicky Tiel started her career under Louis Feraud after graduating from Parsons and then went on to launch her own label. She quickly became known for her sexy, fitted dresses and in particular, the corseted and draped silhouette that we see on this dress. The dress is  wonderfully constructed and well cut. I must say that my photos are doing it an injustice as it was too large for the mannequin so the curved hourglass shape that would be created on a proper sized girl is not being displayed to its full extent. That shape is created by the interior structure of the bodice made of vertical boning inside so that it is shaped right down through to the hip area. The fabric used is a fine silk net that is a deep navy color. This fabric drapes beautifully and the slight stretch inherent to it gives you shape and structure. The net is hand gathered in beautiful draping that run across the bodice and shaped to highlight the bust. Little caps sleeves can be worn high on the shoulder or off. More draping circles the waist and end in long panels of fabric that cascade down the front. The skirt sweeps to the floor and has the perfect amount of volume and movement. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a deep blue silk placed between the boning on the interior and closes with a back zipper. Boned through the bodice and waist. The skirt has an inner lining of her signature black stretch jersey.
