This iconic 1950's shadow grey satin dress, with a brocade pattern of infinity rings, is just the piece for that special occasion.
The rounded neckline is accented by a central split along the décolletage and medium sized shoulder straps, which set off the sleeveless cut. The fitted bodice, is accented by tailored darts along the bust-line and single pleats that radiate up from the cinched in waistline. The fitted waist, draws the eye to the central inverted pleat, framed to each side by box pleats, which radiate along the elegant line of the skirt.
