Description

Black and blue taffeta evening dress featuring thin shoulder straps and a very full, floor-length skirt with a drop-waistline that is embellished with oversized bows on each side of the lower hips. The sketch shows the back view of the dress, revealing a center seam on the bodice and a plunging v-shaped neckline that extends down to the waist. Fashion designer Natacha Rambova hired Orrick to produce this sketch and many others.
