1994 Philippe Venet Couture Black Silk Asymmetric Cut Out Bias-Cut Gown
An ultra chic and super seductive Philippe Venet haute couture black silk sculpted cut-out gown dating back to his 1994 spring-summer runway collection. This is also a very special dress because it comes from his very last collection. Venet famously worked as an assistant to Elsa Schiaparelli from 1951 to 1953, and then worked beside Hubert de Givenchy at his couture house’s atelier through 1962, when Venet launched his own couture house. As Olivier Gabet, director of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris once said, “As Monsieur Hubert de Givenchy’s lifelong companion, he helped to build the house into an international force in fashion, and his many contributions remain an essential part of our DNA.” This dynamic dress is a fantastic example of his talent. The gown is fashioned from the highest quality black silk that has been draped to perfection. The construction reads so modern yet the divine bais cut silhoutee is a nod to classic 1930's femme fatale fashion. Just look at the gorgeous one-shoulder design which effortlessly flows into a sculpted side cut-out. This is that versatile day to night look every fashionista looks for.
