Geoffrey Beene is a revered American designer who is known for his craftsmanship, and this dress demonstrates that exquisitely.
The double layered silk chiffon pleated skirt of the dress moves gorgeously- one of Beenes priorities in making clothing. Dated from late 80 to early 90s -It is around this time that his fashion shows featured professional dancers modelling his clothes. The dramatic width of the diaphanous skirt is breathtaking.
With a classic Beene element of surprise - the bottom layer of the skirt features a bold blue ribbon trim.
The jersey top with a subltle raglan and delicate seam fall beautifully for an almost casual touch in a very elegant gown.
A collectible piece, to be treasured and worn for years to come.
