Description

Calf-length evening dress featuring short pointed cap sleeves and a sash belt that is tied into a large bow at the front center of the waist. A small view of the back of the dress shows that the sash belt extends from the sides of a panel of fabric that creates a diamond shape on the back bodice. The dress also features a long pointed collar that is separate from the rest of the dress, as indicated in the inscription. Fashion designer Natacha Rambova hired Orrick to produce this sketch and many others.
