Mid to late 1990s Moschino Cheap and Chic monochrome dress. This is a midi-length dress with a very striking mono print - almost tuxedo like and perfect for more formal dos or a day to night event. A long, front-fastening shirtwaister style with a notched collar; the black fabric buttons contrast with the cream sleeveless bodice. It has belt loops and a fabric tie belt. Made in Italy from a high quality acetate/rayon blended fabric that has been texturized to give the dress a pleasing weight. The sizing label is no longer present but we estimate this is good fit for up to UK size 12 UK, US size 8. In great vintage condition; gently worn with absolutely no issues and seen here on the television presenter Francesca Cumani.

Born in Abbiategrasso, Italy in 1950, Franco Moschino studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan, where he supplemented his income with work as a fashion illustrator. In 1971, he began work as an illustrator for Italian designer Gianni Versace. Following his time at Versace, Moschino went on to work for the fashion house Cadette in 1977 alongside Karl Lagerfeld. In 1983, Moschino launched Moschino Couture and found enormous success before his untimely death in 1994. He was succeeded by his long time collaborator, Rossella Jardini, and then Jeremy Scott in 2013. Scott has continued the fashion house's similarly irreverent approach to whimsical design and surrealism. Long live Moschino!
