Description

Evening dress of unknown material featuring a calf-length fitted tunic with a sleeveless bodice and bateau neckline. The tunic is worn over a floor-length pleated skirt that flares at the hem. The sketch also includes a small view of the back of the dress that shows that the tunic is split from top to bottom, revealing the pleated skirt and an open bodice that exposes the wearer's skin. Fashion designer Natacha Rambova hired Orrick to produce this sketch and many others.
