Vibrant sunshine yellow flocked silk Mollie Parnis designer gown dating back to the early 1970's. Parnis belongs to the first generation of American designers known to the public by name rather than by affiliation to a department store. Her designs were regularly featured in fashion magazines like Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and Vanity Fair. Several articles in LIFE highlighted her success, proclaiming that "When Mollie Parnis Thinks a Design Will Sell, It Goes." This stunning gown is a perfect example of her genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; the highest quality yellow velvet flocked dotted semi-sheer silk chiffon all lined in a matching hue. The gorgeous feather trim adds the perfect amount of depth and texture. I love the chic asymmetric one-shoulder neckline. The draped column construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of dress you will reach for anytime you want to be noticed.
