Givenchy Silk Green Cherry Print Cocktail Dress, 1980s
Best known for his high-end, feminine silhouettes, haute couture designer Givenchy rose to international acclaim during the 1960s by creating his signature looks for actress Audrey Hepburn. Maintaining a classic romantic elegance to his designs, Givenchy began experimenting with bolder colors and pattern options around the 1980s.
This dress is made from a vivid green silk that has red-violet cherries throughout. Satin spots add intermittent luster throughout. A modest neckline rounds into slightly gathered short sleeves as classic silhouette evokes Givenchy’s traditional style. The skirt includes an overlay that is hemmed with a sweeping ruffle that adds some playfulness to match the print. An excellent vintage piece, this dress can easily be worn as a casual day dress, the office, or as a fun cocktail outfit.
