1990s Geoffrey Beene Graphic Shift Dress

I love the graphic feel of this little black and cream shift dress from Geoffrey Beene. The body is a slim column of black silk that is topped by a curved inset is a silk satin to create the bodice. Over this is a simple halter style neckline that is cut inset and square at the front and then changes to two skinny straps at the back to allow for a greater expanse of skin! The edges around the bust line are finished with a metallic flat piped ribbon for the teeniest bit of glitz. Excellent, seemingly unworn condition.

Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 16" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 40" from neck to hem

Fully lined in a black silk and closes with a back hidden set zipper. Ribbon finished edges inside
