Vintage Valentino White Silk Wedding Dress w Elaborate Trains, Pleating & Extensive Beading Detail

This stunning Valentino wedding dress is new with tags and was never worn. It is beautifully made and is most likely from the late 1990s. The wedding collections are not as well documented as the regular collections so dating them is a little trickier but regardless of date this would most certainly be from the Mr Valentino era. It is in perfect condition and is a stunning dress from a bride looking to make a chic and elegant statement.

This is a stunning dress. It is made from layers of a natural white silk chiffon and these fall in a smooth column from the shoulders. The shoulders are the most elaborate part of the dress and are made out of a white silk netting. Onto that is this elaborate floral design that has a 3D quality to it. Little white silk flowers have been hand made and applied to the netting with clusters of beads at their centers. Their stems and leaves are made from embroidery, seed beads and teeny tiny sequins and then little prong set rhinestones are scattered throughout. This covers the upper chest and shoulders with little cap sleeves. The bodice is made from the same silk chiffon and it has being elaborately gathered into soft romantic pleats that run across the bust and around the back. At the back it crosses over itself for more detail there and this is from where the train extends out from. At the front the dress falls in a smooth column with three layers of silk, two silk chiffon top layers with an inner silk layer under those. It skims over the waist and hips and then gradually widens out at the hem. At the back you have multiple layers of silk chiffon panels extending out from that center point. These all widen out as they near there ends and are cut to different lengths. This gives you a weeping train that extends far out past the ham but still has tons of visual interest because of the different lens of the panels and the way that they expend outwards. Having them separate panels also give them lots of movement. It is stunning and it was never worn and still has all its original tags. Excellent condition

Fully lined a white silk and the upper bodice is unlined. It closes with a hidden set side zipper. Hidden cups inside the bust and light boning on the interior corset. And of course it could be adjusted if you needed more room especially through the waist. It has its original hang tag. Tagged a US12, IT44, FR42, UK14
