Vintage 1970's GALANOS for Amelia Gray Black Maxi Dress with Printed Bodice and Balloon Sleeves
Vintage 1970's GALANOS for Amelia Gray Black Maxi Dress with Printed B
A piece of fashion history from American designer James Galanos. This 1970's maxi dress is a gorgeous piece representative of the GALANOS aesthetic. James Galanos started selling / collaborating with the high end boutique Amelia Gray in Beverly Hills (open since 1951). This dress would have been part of a collection for the boutique in the 1970's. The dress bodice is constructed from a silk jersey fabric with gorgeous balloon sleeves. The bodice front/back is an abstract print in bold red, purple, black and moss green.
The waist band is where the fabric transitions with pintuck details into a heavier black silk taffeta fabric. The interior has a grosgrain waist stay.
*Note: Tiny areas on the on the bodice where there are tiny piling, barely noticeable due to the print and color. Reflected in price.
