Vintage 1970s Giorgio Beverly Hills Cocktail Dress Black Silk Chiffon & Lace M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a lovely quality cocktail dress that was custom ordered from Giorgio Beverly Hills during the 1970s.  Giorgio was established in 1961 and was the first luxury fashion boutique to open on Rodeo Drive.  Their customers included Natalie Wood, Princess Grace (Kelly), the Reagans, Diana Ross and Elizabeth Taylor.  This dress is made of silk chiffon over an opaque satin silk base and has a lace bodice.  It is sleeveless, has spaghetti straps, and the skirt falls in drapes in a to-the-knee length.
