This is a super sexy 1980s Casadei black stretch chiffon dress with front ruching and a turquoise sequinned attached capelet. Typical of its era, this dress has such great design features especially the flattering draping and ruching as well as the sheer cape area embellished beautifully with iridescent blue and green sequins taking a floral motif pattern. The main bodice of the dress is a manmade fabric while the sheer cape appears to be a silk chiffon. The skirt flows elegantly from the ruched bodice down to just below the knee. The dress is fully lined and the label reads Casadei, which is a heritage Italian high end shoe brand but also briefly forayed into fashion during the 80s and 90s. The dress is in very good vintage condition with the sequins retaining their colour and pattern. There are some minor pulls of the fabric of the bodice but these are not noticeable due to the ruching. There is no sizing label so we estimate this to be best suited for sizes up to a UK 12 - US 8. Our model here is a UK 8-10 but it also has been worn by a UK 12-14 as there is some give in the hip.
