Ruby red, silk satin sleeveless evening dress. Backless to the waist, the dress is constructed from a series of panels and sections that have been pinned, draped, twisted and attached to form the bodice and skirt. The bodice comprises a fabric ribbon neckline from which the front and bra cup panels are attached. The skirt section hangs in generous folds and is caught up and gathered at centre front.
