Description

Sleeveless evening dress featuring a deep v-shaped neckline, long panels or strips that hang off the back of each shoulder, and a floor-length fishtail skirt that appears to be gored on each side. The dress also features seaming on the bodice that forms a large chevron shape. The inscription "Bianchini" presumably refers to the fabric house Bianchini-Férier. Fashion designer Natacha Rambova hired Orrick to produce this sketch and many others.
