Physical description
Black silk dress formed from a single-shoulder columnar sheath that extends on the right hand side into a large balloon sleeve that gathers at the wrist. A further length of fabric extends from the wrist to form a large wrap that drapes over the other shoulder. Fastens with a short zip and metal hook and eyes at the side.
