"Lacroix sweetie, Lacroix"

If you were alive in the late 80's/early 90's and fashionably aware you probably know this designer. If not, immediately purchase all the episodes of "Absolutely Fabulous." Then sit down, tune in, and let Patsy and Eddie teach you about the greatness that is Christian Lacroix.

The dress below is made from textured silk with a fuchsia, green, black, purple and blue floral print. The shape is a classic Lacroix strapless Bubble dress with a sweetheart neckline and waist sash. There is a thin sheet of interfacing on the inside the dress that acts like a crinoline to help the bubble keep its shape. If you are not familiar with the Bubble dress that Lacroix made famous, check out the current collection at Balenciaga. The shapes of the dress are very similar to the Lacroix Bubbles

Christian Lacroix Luxe floral strapless bubble dress, c. late 80's. Marked size 38, Contemporary size 4. SOLD
