This incredible Victorian inspired evening gown by British couture designer, Jacques Azagury, is an absolute show stopping piece designed to turn heads. Circa early 1990s and of lavish and complex construction, it is inspired by a 1870s riding habit and composed of a quilted double breasted closure with lapel and dolman sleeves. Clinched at the waist, the bottom half of the dress is created in a ballgown fashion with an asymmetrical hem at the front. Three large fabric flowers can be found on the lower right hip of the dress. On the inside, black tulle is added to keep the skirt voluminous. Made in a sumptuous dark plum taffeta silk, the dress has a slight sheen in the light and is a best fit for around a UK size 10 or US 6. Immaculate vintage condition with no issues.
