Physical description
Full length dress with asymmetric neckline metallic fabric composed of small linked disks. It has one short sleeve. Under the sleeveless arm a long sash extends around the body to form tie belt at waist. This fabric is extremely difficult to cut or join and the evice of gros-grain ribbon down the interior sides has enabled the designer to join the fabric together and follow the body line.
