vintage Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Couture/London 1998; Draped corset in duchess silk satin with loose fabric around the neckline and on the steam-adjustable front. The corset features a flat-boned torso and rigid back panels with hidden high-tension center zipper creating a 23-inch waist. To allow the thick silk to twist in different directions in a cowl neck, the straps are designed slightly asymmetrical. Made to order in London at the Davies Street showroom, where celebrities have been dressed for formal wear. Size UK 10 is US 4. The color of seafoam is slightly faded with storage and age, so it is [[2 ]]clearly vintage to me. When worn and dry cleaned once, sweat stains remain on the lining due to the length of time the extremely fitted garment was worn during a wedding. A minor exterior discoloration in the corner of the upper right side panel may be mistaken for a shadow from the adjacent drape. When worn by a mannequin, flaws are virtually unnoticeable given the variable reflections of creamy silk, not to mention the ability to rearrange its twists and folds. If I were to wear it again for a formal occasion, as opposed to jeans, I would dye it darker. If you are interested in a vintage Vivienne Westwood ensemble, also available is a Red Label/Milan 1998 cream colored Canton silk crepe skirt above the knee [ [2]]Italian size 40 (US 4) with high rise waist and prominent logo button and zipper on the left side, white cotton lining and hanger loops, side and side seams darts, and center back seam with wide leg slit. This lustrous fabric is heavier and coarser than corset silk for a fine, crinkled surface , which resists creases from sitting.
