A sculptural eveningwear masterpiece by the late Gianfranco Ferre. Designed in the early 90's and shown on the fashion runway.
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.
Evening gown fashioned of tissue black silk taffeta with strapless interior boned corset bodice artfully wrapped around back and secured in place with hook and eye closures with a huge extending wide dramatic train. Diagonal placement of single shoulder strap. What makes this piece so desirably special is Ferre's special minimalist approach transforming it into an opulent theatrical fashion statement. Shown on the runway in the early 90's this rare architectural masterpiece is not only spectacularly wearable but is also highly collectible.
