2001 Versace Couture Documented Runway Black Sheer Silk & Leather Bias-Cut Gown
A highly coveted and ultra seductive Gianni Versace semi-sheer black silk chiffon bias-cut floor length gown dating back to Donatella Versace's iconic 2001 fall-winter collection. This exceptional dress is documented runway look #59. The garment mixes delicate silk chiffon with brown leather and the end result is truly sensational. The bodice has been skillfully draped low, trimmed with elegant leather cap sleeves. I love the matching adjustable Versace waist belt which works so well with the shoulder detail. The flattering bias-cut shape flows to the ground with impressive zig-zag pleating; intentionally left sheer right below the knee. Such a nod to 1930's design. This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This archival look is the type of dress you will reach for anytime you want to be noticed.
Measurements Marked a size 42 (varies a bit due to bias-cut) Bust: 32-36 inches Waist: 24-28 inches Hips: up to 39 inches Total Length: 64 inches
This 2001 Gianni Versace Couture gown is in beautiful condition with no rips, fade or holes. The inside is immaculate and closes with hidden side zipper. Original belt included. Such a well-documented editorial gown and even seen on Kylie Minogue at the 2001 GQ Awards. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will only continue to increase in value.
