Vintage 80s Valentino Black Velvet Strapless Cocktail Dress • Designer
- The bodice is made of luscious silky inky black velvet with a black crepe tulip skirt in a wraparound style, so flattering and hides any unflattering areas. There are two large pearl and rhinestone buttons to the waist, just off set centre to draw the eye to the lovely folds in the skirt detail.
- Fully lined. Back zipper fastening.
- This is a classic 1980's fashion piece, made by an iconic designer favoured by the Royals and fashion elite.
- The label reads size 12 - please note this has been pinned to fit the very slender mannequin, who is also over 6' tall.
- Bust 34"
- Waist 28"
- Length 32"
Condition - Fabulous condition, barely worn.
Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
