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.
