Size 4 Sarmi Dress & Fur Trimmed Jacket - Burgundy Silk Velvet - Champagne Silk Satin - Sumptuous Couture Designer - Posh 1960s Evening

$ 549.99

Exquisite fabrics in a haute quality ensemble! This silk dress and velvet jacket is unsurpassable in its pedigree, made by Ferdinando Sarmi, a savvy couturier who dressed First Ladies in the 1960s. The dress has an Empire velvet bodice with a V-neck and perfectly sculpted satin bow. The A-line skirt is a bell-like flare to the knee. Matching jacket has a collarless neckline and gorgeous mink band around the hem, as dramatic as a cloak with its posh fur and deep velvet hue. Both pieces fully lined and meticulously hand-finished. The hangtags are still attached from Sarmi's Seventh Avenue showroom.
