1968 Arnold Scaasi Couture White Embroidered Lace Strapless Tiered Gown & Cape
In this gorgeous Arnold Scaasi designer gown, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern Haute-Couture. Arnold Scaasi was an acclaimed fashion designer who created gowns for such notable personalities as Joan Crawford, Lauren Bacall and Elizabeth Taylor. This rare show-stopper, from his 1968 collection, is a wonderful example of his pure genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; luxurious crisp-white metallic embroidered floral patterned lace. The bodice has a gorgeous boned shelf-bust strapless design. I love the versatile matching bow-trimmed capelet which adds a beautiful charm to the ensemble. The nipped-waist tiered full skirting has a perfect amount of drama without being so over-bearing. As Scaasi himself once said, "If a woman wears a Scaasi dress, she'll be noticed; that's the kind of dress to make an entrance in. The dress will be flattering and make you feel good." A timeless beauty that will work for any modern event.
