1980s Vivid & Dramatic Loris Azzaro Couture Pink Silk Gown

This brilliantly hued pink silk taffeta bubble gown is what haute couture dreams are made of. It is over the top, dramatic and an absolute statement piece that will turn every head when you walk into a room. On the wrong girl this might seem comical but on the right girl it will be stupendous and become legendary for its audacity and boldness. You so rarely see his Haute Couture pieces anywhere and to have one as incredible as this is just a treat. Azzaro was a favorite of actresses like Raquel Welch and Sophia Loren among others and quickly gained international recognition with his sexy designs. Here he takes pink taffeta to new heights with this bold gown. It is just stunning. The bodice is hand draped and pleated and constructed to shape - a true feat to construct properly when using a fabric like this. The skirt is made of the same pink silk and flows in a series of padded "bubbled" tiers that fall to the floor. Each of those tiers has an inner construct of tulle so that the shape is kept and the volume her desired is achieved. The bolero/shawl that tops the gown is nothing short of amazing. It has a single arm opening and is made so that you simply drape the other side as you wish. This creates a single shoulder look as I have styled it or you can play around with it and get it to sit the way you wish. It is stunning. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in pink silk with a built in bra though the bodice that hooks to close separately. It closes at the back with a painted metal and nylon zipper. The bodice is boned. The cape/bolero has a single arm hole and no closures that I can see though you could easily add a hook & eye.
