1990s Herve Leger Velvet & Bead Front Detailed Bandage Dress

Leger worked for Karl Lagerfeld at Fendi and followed him to Chanel in 1983 when Lagerfeld took over there. In 1985 Leger began designing under his own name, but it was not until 1993 that the actual Herve Leger label appeared on the scene and history was made. His dresses were on of the stars of the nineties and were among the most coveted and iconic of the labels during that period of fashion. His bandage dress in particular were coveted by every girl everywhere and his strong lines and sensual designs were seen on everyone and appeared everywhere. This is a stunning version of that famous dress and I love the combination of textures used on it. The body of the dress is made up of those famous "bandage" strips of fabric that cinch you in and give you curves. In sharp contrast is a low, inset panel of luxurious velvet that is set in like a corset at the front. The velvet is studded with jet black bead work that has been all hand placed. This combination is gorgeous. The dress will mold and shape itself to your shape. Gorgeous. Excellent condition

The front panel at the bodice is fully lined in a black silk and the rest of the dress is unlined. It closes with a hidden set back zipper. Tagged a size L but please check actual listed measurements. The fabric does have stretch
