Spring 2008 Giambattista Valli Strapless Ivory Fitted Dress

This was a part of the spring 2008 collection but not shown on the runway. It is a stunning and sexy fitted dress in an off-white. The skirt is slim cut and very fitted. It is cut to sit high up on the waist with the bodice set above this. The bodice is made of silk chiffon that has been tucked, gathered and puckered by hand in order to create a beautiful contrast to the skirt. A simple grosgrain ribbon wraps and ties at the waist. I love the delicate ruffle that runs around the top and has a slightly raw feel to it. Stunning. Excellent condition

Note that it was too tiny to close on the mannequin but does properly close - this also affected the fit at the front a bit - on a real girl it will fit tight the torso. The inner bodice has a full built in corset that is cupped, boned and closes with a hook & eye. This is all hand set. Behind this the dress is fully lined in silk. It closes on the exterior with a hidden set zipper. Tagged a 40/XS
