Fagottry Anyone . . .

This Perfect little black dress by Azzedine Alaia is a prime example of how fagottry should be done. The drop waist dress is constructed from several different panels that have been joined together with fagottry stitches that give a wonderful little peek to what lies beneath. The last picture in the set is a closeup of the stitch that Alaia became so well known for. The dress is constructed from the classic stretch material that Alaia used. This is a great representation of the Alaia "Look" that was so popular in the 80's.

Azzedine Alaia black dress with fagottry stitch and drop waist, c.1980's. Contemporary size 4 SOLD!
