 In this gorgeous Arnold Scaasi designer gown, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern haute-couture. Arnold Scaasi was an acclaimed fashion designer who created gowns for such notable personalities as Joan Crawford, Lauren Bacall and Elizabeth Taylor. This rare show-stopper, from his 1966 collection, is a wonderful example of his genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; luxurious watercolor cobalt-blue floral light weight silk-taffeta. The bodice is an elegant nipped-waist silhouette with lean, long sleeves. I love the ruffle cuffs and coordinating ruffle collar which adds beautiful texture to the garment. The long a-line skirting has a perfect amount of fullness without being so over-bearing. As Scaasi himself once said, "If a woman wears a Scaasi dress, she'll be noticed; that's the kind of dress to make an entrance in. The dress will be flattering and make you feel good." A timeless beauty that will work for any modern event.
