Stunning 1990s Jacques Fath Bow Detailed One Shoulder Bias Cut Dress
Jacques Fath showed his first collection of just twenty garments in the spring of 1937. It was received well and he steadily built a strong clientele, eventually expanding into America. The label was shuttered in 1957 after Fath's death three years earlier. In 1992 the label was revived and for the next ten years or so continued to present runway collections. This dress is from that period in the 1990s and is a wonderful piece. It has a definitive nod to Fath's earlier work with its dramatic silhouette and bias cut lines. The dress is made from a silk that has a touch of nylon worked into the fabric so that it hugs your curves but has a slight amount of give for maximum comfort and perfect fit. The dress is fitted through the bust, curves in the accentuate the waist and from there glides over the hips to cascade to the floor. It is cut supermodel long and the hem is cut to sweep out all the way around so that you get a tremendous amount of movement and it adds to the hourglass effect the dress give you when it is on the body. I love the huge silk bow that the bust is detailed with. It feels like it is wrapped around the bust and then tied into the large bow. The end of the bow extends and curves over the shoulder. At the back, the tiniest, most delicate strap suspends the dress from that bow. It is gorgeous on the body. Excellent condition
