Description: Fabulous designer vintage '80s era dress by Claude Montana featuring an avant-garde design. Distinctive space-age hoop around the waistline. The feature stands out against the simple, elegant line of the dress. The bodice fastens at the front with a zipper, and hoop around the waist connects independently with velcro while the skirt closes with four snaps. High neckline at the front, and a low cut back. The waist is accented by the cut of the dress. Skirt is above the knee length and lined in rayon acetate.

About the Designer: Montana started his own label in 1979, and entered into a design agreement with Gruppo GFT in 1987.  He worked for Lanvin between 1989 and 1992 and terminated his agreement with Gruppo GFT in 1996.  

Montana made a name for himself during the late '70s with innovative, futurist designs. He continued to create avant-garde, cutting edge design, even while at Lanvin. Unfortunately, although winning the Golden Thimble award for two years in a row while at Lanvin, he was forced to leave due to financial losses.
