This timeless vintage little black party dress was made by David Hayes in the late 1980s/early 1990s. David Hayes was a Los Angeles designer very active during the 80s and 90s who famously rebelled against the fashion status quo of his era, celebrating women and their inherent femininity. At the same time, he insisted on using old-fashion, labor-intensive tailoring techniques, and never cut corners, using expensive trims and linings. It's made of beautiful silk crepe, with a sarong-style draped skirt accented with a beautifully draped rosette at the asymmetrical waistline. Darts in the bodice provide shape, and there are light shoulder pads offsetting the 3/4  length sleeves. The craftsmanship is evident: it's beautifully lined on the interior, with hand-finished details. Closes in the back with a hidden zipper and single button. Note that the exact fiber contents are not listed.
