Vintage 1990s Moschino Cheap and Chic Red Dress Size Medium 8


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a vintage 1990s red dress designed by Moschino as part of their Cheap and Chic brand.  The dress is made in a sleeveless style with a to the knee length.  It has a decorative belt with two buttons at the hips.  The dress is made in a simple, understated, style with slight accentuation at the waist.  It is lined and closes with a zipper down the back. 

Age: early 1990s

Maker’s Label: Moschino Cheap and Chic.  Cheap and Chic was introduced in 1988 with a younger demographic in mind.  The line is indeed Chic, but was never Cheap - garments made under this label feature quality materials and were priced as luxury goods.  This particular label was used from 1988 until the early 1990s.  

Material:  The content label has been removed, so I’m unsure as to the fabric.  It has some stretch to it and appears to be a knit, so my guess would be a wool blend, probably with Lycra - Moschino used only quality fabrics. The garment would have been made in Italy by AEFFE, who was the majority owner of the Cheap and Chic line.

Sizing: US Size 8 is indicated, but please note the following measurements, taking the style of the dress into account:
