Ferre's recent death leaves a legacy of magnificent artful and uniquely constructed high fashion eveningwear. Originally, having studied as an architect, Ferre was the fashion director for the House of Dior in 1989. Ferre's designs were extremely original and architecturally distinctive. Known as the "Frank Lloyd Wright of Italian Fashion," his clothes were always fashioned of the highest quality fabric with a distinct eye for the dramatic.
Circa 1990's a signature wrap gown with a Grecian inspiration fashioned of eggshell white textured woven silk with a side panel of silk net overlaid with hand sewn pattern of tiny bugle beads in silver, gunmetal gray and clear crystal beads. Strapless design with side panel that wraps around and snaps on opposite underarm side. Interior nude net bra support. Side zipper and hook closure. In addition, the wrap panel offers an alternative to wear as a one shoulder slave dress a la Madame Gres.
