It looks cool and modern as you can see by the uber chic sisters, Victoria and Vanessa Traina.
So how is it that a 20+ year old dress can look so on trend? Because, my vintage sisters and brothers, there ain't nuthin' new under the sun. Fashion is basically one big flashback tweaked.
One of my favorite new finds for RARE vintage is a 1980s Geoffrey Beene gown in black and white with an open back. I love the silhouette which is very 1930s movie glamour goddess. The dress hugs the body, is covered in the front and plunges seductively to the waist in the back. Timeless, modern, classic and on trend...
1980s Geoffrey Beene black and white gown only available at RARE vintage. Size 4/6.
