Vintage Oleg Cassini Couture Ivory Silk Satin Open Sided & V Back Gown
This dress is exceptional as far as the sheer impact of its design, It is made from an ivory silk satin. This gives the dress a touch of a rich sheen to it that beautifully catches the light. The front is cut in a long sleek sheath with a high set, wide scooped neckline. There is a overlay from the waist down that is set so that it just softly drapes around the hips for a bit of a sculptural feel and detailing. This overlay wraps all the way around and is secured on either side of the back zipper. It then drapes down in an elegantly curving line. The underskirt is cut longer at the back to form a train. I love how this creates that beautiful draped feel all around the hip area. The back is cut into a low V and each side is left open. This side opening is incredibly sensual and unexpected. Each has a criss cross beaded strap that runs down the open side for just the most subtle touch of beading and glitz. It is a gorgeous dress that would be perfect for a wedding dress for some one who wanted something not quite so traditional. Excellent condition with one note to review below
Fully lined with an ivory silky rayon and closes with a back zipper. The gown is very fresh looking with grubbiness only to the back train. I see a teeny bit of sequin loss to one strap that is extremely minor. I have included a photo of each of these areas after the label shot. Tagged a size 6
