A showstopping vintage dress from the late 80s by legendary French fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent. In a boldly multicolored, watered silk taffeta / moiré fabric with a paisley inspired pattern throughout in hues of blue, pink, purple and green. The bodice of the dress has long sleeves and a deep scoop neck which adds a touch of sex appeal. The waist is trimmed with a black silk braid which then flares out to a cleverly constructed, full bubble skirt with gathers to create a more voluminous look. The rear in particular is full and slightly longer creating an almost bustle like effect which gives a playful yet sophisticated silhouette. This would make the perfect statement at a party or evening event.

Excellent Vintage Condition - Small number of very small and very faint marks in spots (as pictured) but these are all lost very well in the pattern and placement and not noticeable at all when worn, only seen when going through the fabric closely. Small pull to skirt but again lost in the pattern and by the gathers. No holes or tears.
Unlabelled; feels like a silk / viscose faille.
