F/W 2009 Azzedine Alaia Burgundy Silk & Chenille Knit Dress

Rachel Zoe wore a dress from this same collection when she debuted her windows for Tiffany. Her version had a full sleeve but this version is more of a cocktail dress with a simple sleeveless bandeau style bodice and a strap that wraps up and around the neck. I love the gathered design that is created by the bands that circle the dress from top to bottom. The ones around the bodice are the same fine knit fabric as the base and the ones that circle the skirt are made from his signature chenille. Inside, it has a built in inner bodice so there is no need for foundation garments. I love the deep burgundy color. Excellent condition.

Unlined through the body with a fully lined and finished inner corset at the bust area that is boned and has built in cups. This inner corset closes with its own separate zipper. The exterior dress closes with a side zipper that lies over the inner corset zipper. The very bottom hem feels slightly padded and each of the horizontal strip has an internal elastic built into it. The original retail on this dress was well over $5000. All the measurements have some stretch if needed except for the length and bust (unless you remove the corset).

Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Inner corset waist: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 24" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: approx15" from top of neck strap to waist
Skirt: 22" from waist to hem

Modern Sizing equivalent: MED-LRG
