1990s Vivienne Westwood Light Purple Draped Red Label Dress

This is just classic Westwood and you can instantly tell this is her work as it has all of her hallmarks. It is from her red label dress from the late 1990s and being so classic it still feels as relevant and sexy now as it was then. It also still has its original tags so is like taking a dress from a time capsule as it was never worn. The dress is made out of a light purple matte satin fabric that has a built in corset through the bodice and her signature asymmetrical neckline treatment with one sleeve set high and the other set to drape off the shoulder.  The top portion of the dress is almost sculptural in its draping details. It skims over the torso into a full length skirt that falls to the floor in a column of fabric. This cut emphasizes the bust, flatters the waist and then hug the hips. I love the gathered fabric swag and the slit that shows a little leg. New with tags and unworn. Excellent condition

Lined in the same fabric and closes at the side with a half zipper that runs up the side from the waist and a second one that runs along the waist seam. Inner built in panty that closes with snaps. New with tags. Tagged a modern size 42
