silk, l 46cm More details

This evening dress was designed by the Italian Maria ‘Nina´ Ricci, who founded her own fashion house in Paris in 1932. The gown consists of an underskirt and a tunic. The draped silhouette recalls the clothing worn by women in ancient Greece, on which many 1930s evening dresses were modelled. The abstract floral pattern lent the design a contemporary character.
