Label:
The Tassell look for evening was understated and luxurious at the same time. In 1968 and 1969 it featured long sleeves, a high neckline, and a little tie under the bust. The designer is known for his sparing use of surface decoration, seen in this dress decorated with sparkling, topaz-colored crescents.
