Absolutely Stunning late 1970's/early 1980's Nina Ricci Haute Boutique silk gown. Made in France.
The bodice consists of bustier style lace to the hip with sheer silk chiffon overlay. The lace is slightly shimmery and lined with light beige fine Rhodia/bemberg fabric. The shoulders are seemless and the sleeves slightly balloon shaped. The waist is accentuated with a silk satin ribbon and bow that do up with 2 hooks and eyes. A back zipper with a Talon pull to do up the dress.
The skirt portion is 2 layers of full knife pleated silk chiffon from the hip to the hem. No lining. It moves beautifully!
Condition is very good with the exception of some slight water marks on the inside of the bodice lining as shown in the last photo.
