Armani’s classic style telegraphs through all that he does. The Italian born designer, who originally planned on studying medicine, began his fashion career in window dressing at a Milan department store. In fashion design, Armani was initially recognized for his expertly tailored suits. While an Armani suit is still the gold standard in tailored garments, his gowns have equal renown. This passionate dress from the 1990s, which is from his elite “black label” line, carries the essence of Giorgio Armani designs. A simple scooped-neck sheath dress, the silky black velvet is cut to skim the figure closely. The wide shoulder straps complete the balanced curve of the neckline, giving the décolletage modest emphasis. A hidden center back zipper is expertly installed, working beautifully with the fully lined interior. The true exquisiteness of this dress is revealed through the hand sequined and beaded roses. Armani has frequently returned to the rose for inspiration throughout his career. This flamboyant use of them is particularly striking, evoking a Spanish toreador with roses floating down from a cheering crowd. Size 40 Measurements: Bust: 34 inches Waist: 30 inches Hips: 38 inches Length: 59 inches This vintage Armani dress from the 1990s has been professionally cleaned and pressed, and is in excellent condition. Constructed from a silk-blend velvet the gentle columnar silhouette has wide shoulder straps and a scooped neckline. Fully lined in black satin, the full length dress slips on easily and is fastened with a center back hidden zipper. A hook & eye provides final closure at the top of the zipper. A stunning hand sequined and beaded rose pattern adds dimension and rarity to this otherwise traditional silhouette. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
