1980s Wayne Clark Pink Silk Plunging Neckline & Huge Pouf Sleeve Dress

If you loved the recent trend towards big pouf sleeves and and that cut that was pure eighties glamour, then you will absolutely love this original 1980s dress. I think it's amazing It is made from a pink silk that has a secondary design woven through the silk and provides a bit of contrast between the finish of the two silk fibers. In person the pink is a truer pink hue then how it photoed and even better then what you see. It has padding in the shoulders so the shape is held perfectly and the front and back plunge into a deep V right to the banded waist. The waist is defined with a wide band of the same silk that is top stitched and quilted into horizontal rows. From under that wide band at the waist the skirt falls in a neat column to just past the knee. The sleeves are of course the star of the show on this dress and  each is cut into spectacular huge poufs. The volume you see is not from me stuffing them with anything either. They are cleverly finished on the interior so that is the effect they have when on. Love it from shoulder to hem  Excellent condition
