Vintage Oscar de la Renta Couture Skirt
Because of many requests I've recieved over the years we are offering Vintage and Boho of antique estate sales from our hollywood Montecito estates. The years I did costuming for theatre I always started with a core costume and added onto it. When I go on a buying trip I have gals start to follow me around because they say I have the magic touch for choosing exquisite, exotic or the unexpected garment. Now I am offering these treasured finds to you. There may be some gentle wear on item, but we will descibe that in each item's listing.
This is a stunning find! An Oscar De La Renta Couture Skirt. I live in the land of Hollywood movie stars and one of them must have worn this. I'm just going to describe it to talk about the glory of this skirt. The skirt fabric has horizontal one-quarter inch silk taffeta edged on both sides with gold white and black embroidery creating a ribbon trim. From the waistband down they have used the ribboned lines horizontally and hand-tucked and pleated the waistband so that you see none of the pearl fabric creating a beautuful golden embroidered waistband approximately one inch. It is a glorious skirt.
*It looks like it has never been worn and you will look stunning in it!
Design details: Waistband has one hook and eye closure with one fabric covered snap which closes the twelve inch side opening. Twelve inch tucked overlap. In the bottom seven inch hem of the skirt is a semi-stiff interfacing that creates weight and stiffness to the drape of the skirt.
