GIVENCHY 1960s Couture Evening Gown Belted Maxi Dress Size XXS-XS

1200 EUR
A truly amazing Givenchy couture evening dress from the 1960s - entirely done by hand and constructed exquisitely. It is made from a feathery lightweight silk organza with the most intricate floral embroidery and striking appliqu├ęs all-over, lined in apple green silk. Slim-fitting cut. 7/8-length sleeves with two snap fasteners at the wrist. Ankle-length skirt with internal waist stay. The dress closes with a back zipper and snap fasteners and comes with its original large green silk organza belt. Made in France. This dress is truly outstanding. Actress Alice Taglioni chose a very similar dress for the Cannes film festival opening gala 2016 (see last picture) - I think our Givenchy is even more exquisite!
