1990 Azzedine Alaia Ivory White Waffle-Cotton Backless Skater Mini Dress
Incredibly chic ivory white waffle-cotton skater mini dress from Azzedine Alaia's 1990 spring/summer collection. This dress is so iconic and would be a wonderful beach resort or bridal look! Alaïa introduced the world to the 'body' and to his own skin tight dresses. Truly a showcase for the perfect human form, his bodycon look sat alongside the more masculine power suits of the decade. As Suzy Menkes said, "If there were any justice in this fashion world, Azzedine Alaïa would be a worldwide household name, instead of a cult hero. He defined the way an entire generation dresses and become the fashion revolution of the last decade." This stunning nipped waist 'skater' dress is a perfect example of his genius. It is made from a mid-weight waffle textured pique cotton in the prettiest ivory white color. I love the sleeveless low scooped back hourglass bodice design. The mini skirt construction has complex invent pleating which gives the dress a wonderful rich weight and unforgettable movement. There are even hidden side pockets! As with all Azzedine Alaia pieces, this dress is cut to highlight your every curve. Such a flattering and timeless look.

This 1990 Alaia designer dress is in beautiful condition with no noticeable rips, holes or alternations. Garment closes with original back center zipper. Only sign of wear is some very minor overall age yellowing to the cotton which is not noticeable when worn. A wearable investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
