Norman Norell Runway Dress
This is a stunning
runway dress from Norman Norell, the master of elegant American
style. The runway model number is stitched to the pleated silk
chiffon dress and the matching silk slip.
Midnight blue silk
chiffon is sewn in wide stitched down pleats from the shoulders to
the hip. The long sleeves are sheer chiffon with a series of fabric
covered buttons and loops. This detail is identical to the buttons
and loops at the center front of the dress. The sheer skirt falls
in loose pleats to mid-calf. There is a matching silk half slip
with a fitted waistband and a side zipper.
Like all Norell
pieces the style, quality and construction are impeccable, and I am
happy to say that the condition of this dress is also impeccable.
