In this gorgeous Arnold Scaasi designer dress, 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 garments for such notable personalities as Joan Crawford, Lauren Bacall and Elizabeth Taylor. This rare cocktail, from his 1968 collection, is a wonderful example of his genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; luxurious metallic embroidered, beaded red Indian-silk with pops of blue and yellow. The bodice has an elegant semi-sheer neckline with lean, long sleeves. The nipped waist full layered swing 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.
