1980s Zandra Rhodes Gold & Cream Bustier Skirt Set

Body conscious dressing was all the rage in the 80s and though this may not be a piece that makes you instantly think of Zandra and her earlier work it is representation of this time of her career. Both pieces are made of a cream fabric that has just a touch of gold metallic to it. Onto the fabric is a gorgeous design made from fine gold thread that covers both pieces and gives it a subtle but wonderful gleam as it catches the light. The outfit is cut to fit ad accentuate your curves. The top is a fitted corset that has curving sides and pretty pearl and rhinestone buttons that run down the front. The skirt is fitted and short so together they are pretty va-voom and hug your every curve. I love the unexpected thick looped cords that detail the bottom of both the corset and skirt - its that kind of unexpected touch that makes Zandra pieces so wonderful. Excellent condition

Both piece are lined in a cream silky rayon. The bustier closes with a back painted metal and nylon zipper and the skirt with a zipper and flat hook & eye at the waist. Made by hand in England.
