Description

Golden yellow chiffon evening dress with a belted waist, thin shoulder straps, and a floor-length tiered skirt. The dress is mostly fitted and covered with horizontal tucks with the exception of the skirt, which is pleated and slightly flared. The dress is also shown with a metal cloth tunic jacket that features a contrasting trim, circular gold beads, and long panels that extend down from each elbow-length sleeve. Fashion designer Natacha Rambova hired Orrick to produce this sketch and many others.
