by Azalea

AZALEA designed this exquisite three piece evening ensemble in French HAND CUT (by nuns)  Velvet on Peau du Soie.

This Fabric has a subtle yet rich iridescent quality that positively vibrates with sumptuousness.  There is no mistaking this textile with the present day laser cut fabrics on questionable backgrounds.  The artistry was so specialized and labor so intensive that it was done by special arrangement and great cost,  exclusively by French nuns.  This lost art is now part of history.

This stately garment is the personification of classic elegance with its simple and modern design profile.  Bodice and skirt has hand applied zippers. All three pieces are lined in silk.

This  museum quality garment
is in mint condition.
