An ethereal yellow and white floral print silk chiffon Stavropoulos Couture bias-cut gown dating back to the mid 1970's. George Stavropoulos was a New York fashion designer best known for his innovatively draped dresses and evening gowns that seemed to float in air. Many of his designs were influenced by the grace of classic Greek sculpture. He was couturier to celebrities such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and Barbra Streisand. His gowns were made almost entirely by hand in his own atelier. Their quality and workmanship rivaled that of Parisian Haute Couture. They were expensive, selling for up to $7500 in the late 1970's! This breathtaking 'light as a feather' floral silk chiffon gown is a wonderful example of his genius. The print alone is marvelous. The bodice has a gorgeous and complex tiered petal design with straps that can be worn straight or slightly off-shoulder. Love the movement of this flutter! The chic maxi length bias-cut with sculptural back trains read so modern. Stavropoulos ignored fashion trends and women buying one of his gowns know that it will never go out of style.
