Next year this dress will be more legitimately vintage as wise folk now say after 15 years a garment becomes a collectible.  However, in the case of this Alexander McQueen for Givenchy, I would not wait 5 months to proclaim this mini a bonafide collectible.  McQueen designed for Givenchy only for a few seasons and sadly he is no longer with us, so this dress has a head start on being a great fashion investment.  I am particularly fond of the original runway photo where McQueen showed the dress with no lining.  When commercialized as offered now at Decades the dress is now much more wearable and the beaded fringe reminds me of Native American jewelry combined with celestial embroidery over for the body.  It's a mysterious dress by a master of midnight fantasy and fashion.  If Daisy Buchanan has lived in the late 1990s, she would have worn this dress.  Own a piece of history that doesn't require a Brazilian as presented.

Alexander McQueen for Givenchy dress in stretch mesh with beaded fringe, Spring/Summer 1998. Marked size 38. SOLD
