Description
Black ciré satin evening dress with a white, grey, and fuchsia floral pattern spaced throughout. Dress features a floor-length skirt with train and crushed fuchsia ciré satin shoulder straps with a large clip on the right strap. Sketch includes a view of the front of the dress (worn with what appears to be a jeweled cuff bracelet), as well as a small back view of the dress showing an open bodice and twisted fabric that wraps around the waist like a belt and then releases into fullness down the back of the skirt.
