RARE VINTAGE ANDREA ODICINI COUTURE - AMEN WARDY EVENING GOWN - MADE IN ITALY - METAL ZIPPER
An absolutely stunning rare, rare evening gown by andrea odicini - amen wardy from italy
He is considered by italian woman to be the equal to valentino & by some, above - his exquisite eveing gowns were very expensive but they were made with the finest fabrics & with fabulous detailing - they were purchased by only the elite & he would choose who would buy one if his creations - over the years,
I have been fortunate to obtain a pink goddess one-shoulder peignoir & nightgown set by him in addition to a gorgeous evening jacket which is shown under "sweaters & jackets"
This gorgeous evening gown is out of 100% silk in apricot - there is beautiful draping on the bodice which overlaps & is caught with huge (about as big as a salad plate!) bead encrusted flowers measure 9” x 10” - a separate long drape is over the draped skirt on the evening gown for a dramatic look
The ruched cummerbund comes around the side & the back & fastens with silk covered snaps under the large decoration - there is a wide belt inside the dress to pull you in which has hooks & eyes to fasten - long metal zipper in the back
Little silk ribbon straps at the shoulders with snaps to hold your bra straps in place - french seams inside the gown so one’s skin will get chaffed from the raw seam - lots of hand stitching on the evening gown - the evening gown is very heavy because the bodice & the skirt of the evening are out of double silk so the same silk on the outside of the gown is inside as well - fabulous detailing!
Just a gorgeous & extremely rare evening gown by odicini from the ‘50s
