Decades is Ahead of the Trend... Again!
New York fashion week is over, and the designers are in a giving mood--what else could explain the models wrapped up like holiday gifts? Yes, big bows are de rigeur... but Decades shoppers have known that for quite some time now (just check out these listings from Jacqueline de Ribes, Nina Ricci, and Vicky Tiel). It's the sort of design element that isn't for the fashion faint of heart, as this Bill Blass creation suggests. We've included a detail shot of the giant fuchsia embellishment that cascades in folds down the side of the dress, which is finished in luxurious royal blue satin. Why wait 'til fall to get your hands on next season's look, especially in such fab colors?
Bill Blass Royal Blue Gown with Fuchsia Bow and Fanned Cascade Embellishment, c. 1980s. Fits a contemporary size 6 to 8.SOLD
