Numbered c.1979 Givenchy Vivid Pink Silk Organza Full Length Maxi Skirt

Pieces that were made while Hubert de Givenchy still headed the atelier seem to be even more special to me then ones that are more recent. This skirt is especially gorgeous with its vibrant pink color. In person the pink is even better and more towards the fuchsia side of hue then how it photoed. That bright pink combined with the lightness of the silk organza gives it an especially light, bright, fresh feel. The skirt is made up of two layers. The top layer is cut on the bias cut and is a silk organza. There is so much volume in it I think that if it was laid out on the floor flat it would be a full circle skirt and then some. There are yards of fabric making up that layer. The inner skirt is a tissue silk organza and is a slightly brighter pink then the outer layer so when you do see a flash of it at the hem it gives it a slight color contrast. Presents as excellent condition with some small notes to review below.

Fully lined in a pink tissue silk organza and closes with hook & eye at the waist line and silk covered snaps below that. There are small faded marks to the silk here that you will never see once on as there is so much fabric. The upper edge of the waist shows some thinning of the fabric and some light fading. Minor and once on it is not noticeable This is natural patina for this type of fabric. Please see the last two photos provided. Numbered under the tag edge 14390
