Pleated Black Evening Dress, 1980s
An incredible vintage Mary McFadden for Saks Fifth Avenue evening gown in a silky black Arnel fabric (which was discontinued in 1986, and is a synthetic cellulose like rayon) which really keeps the pleats looking incredible. The fortuny inspired pleats are different than McFadden's usual Marii pleats, in that they have pleated chevrons throughout the pleats -which creates an extra texture and interesting look. This stunning full length dress is obviously inspired by ancient Greek designs and has a free size silhouette - being loose and slipping elegantly over the head for a nonchalantly glamorous look.
