Guess Who?

We are not sure who the designer of this amazing dress is, but we have narrowed it down to two; Yves Saint Laurent or Emmanuel Ungaro. The label is missing, so there is no way for us to be sure, but if we had to attribute it to one designer it would have to be Yves Saint Laurent. Let us know what you think, we have been mulling this one over for a while and would love some input.

On to the piece in question, this dress is all about the amazing metallic burnout fabric. It is black chiffon printed with a pink, orange and green floral pattern. Woven into the material is a gold metallic burnout floral pattern. The construction of the garment is a classic wrap dress with pleating at the waist with ruffled cuffs and hem line. There is a detached belt of the same material to tie around the waist. The entire dress is lined with black chiffon lining, except for the sleeves which have a translucent appearance.

Attributed to Yves Saint Laurent black metallic burnout floral chiffon dress, c.late 70's early 80's. Contemporary size 4 SOLD
