1980s Oscar de la Renta Black Silk Flamenco Dress

 

 

 


The influence of Oscar de la Renta's love of Spanish flamenco is evidenced in this unbelievably beautiful black silk organza dress. With de la Renta's trademark ruffles, flounces and sheer femininity, this is a dress to literally take to the floor in. Gossamer black silk taffeta designed with a deeply cut surplice bodice that closes with a row of snaps from the waist to the hip on the left side. Layers of ruffles cascade from the neckline and shoulder, and the sleeve is actually a ruffle as well. The skirt consists of tiers of ruffles, with an asymetrical hem that is slightly longer at the sides than at the front and back.  The bust measures 36",  waist 28", hip 40", shoulder 14", sleeve 6", length 45" to 48" (at the sides).  Excellent condition. $625
