F/W 1994 Todd Oldham Tie Dye Velvet Runway Dress

The fall 1994 collection from Todd Oldham featured a bevy of supermodels and gorgeous gowns, including the twin of this beautiful velvet piece. The vibrant colors cascade over the body of the dress in a stunning array of colors. It is absolutely wonderful and is still as relevant now as it was then. Supermodel long, it is made of a rich velvet that is cut to follow and highlight your every curve while elongating the body. The design was kept simple and sleek, the hallmark of the nineties, which allows that amazing tie dye banding in all those colors to take center stage. The custom, hand done dying of the velvet sits in horizontal bands across the dress from top to bottom. Each of the color's edges slightly blend into the next for a touch of softness. The neckline and back are scooped with ties at the shoulder giving you control over how low you wish it to sit. The waist nips in just a touch and then the skirt cascades to the floor. I love that the inside is lined in silk that has a second and different tie dye feeling print. When you move you see this shocking contrasting print flash around the leg because of that high slit up the side. A superb and rare Oldham gown that would only be one of only a couple produced. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a custom tie dye silk and closes with a back zipper. There is very small faint wear to the velvet around the zipper edges and the zipper sits a little bumpy, this is very minor but mentioned for accuracy. The slit is high - a full 31" up from the hem - you could of course close it if you want more coverage.
