Exquisite Bohemian 100% silk vivid magenta super-floaty, flowing, superb glimmery late 70's-early 80's dress, this beauty is just scrumptious with its exquisite deep, bright magenta pink overprint on satin-striped silk chiffon intermingled with thousands of metallic golden threads. Icinoo/The Silk Farm dresses were sold in only the top high-end stores back in the day, and famous for their exquisite designs and colors. Such a timeless, beautiful and wearable style, with a gently blouson waist, drapey full cape sleeves and a full flaring skirt; this one has the original separate underslip of magenta silk crepe as well as the original silk scarf sash. Fluttering double ruffles all around the V neckline. It's like a gorgeous butterfly and floats just as lightly.....Silk Farm dresses are highly sought after by vintage clothing collectors because of the high quality of the silk fabric and wonderful flowing designs; this is a prime example and in excellent condition. Perfect condition! See all photos for all the views of this beautiful vintage dress. Please check all measurements below!

I'm a degreed and experienced textile scientist/antique garment restorer and seamstress, and I very, very carefully note any and all condition issues or repairs to every piece of antique/vintage clothing that I'm selling, so I can't stress enough that even if they're in pristine condition, remember they are all decades old and NOT new clothing, so if you desire modern perfection please don't purchase vintage! I don't do layaways or take offers, so please don't ask, thank you. Jewelry/accessories/props in photos are not included and not for sale.
I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....I've translated that love to my own contemporary creations as well as now offering some choice pieces of my extremely large collection of vintage and antique beauties!
Measurements of this delicious dress are as follows:
Marked a size 6, might be wearable by an 8 but check measurements. Please be sure you note the measurements of the crepe underslip as well. Bust max: up to about 37", no larger than that; the dress itself is fairly open in the bust area. Slip bust measures 37".
Waist: Good elastic, stretches from 24" to 30".
Hip: free, flared bias cut skirt is very very full; hip measurement on the slip is 40".
Skirt length from waist is approx. 31", keep in mind this may fall shorter on longer depending on the size of one's hips Length is 44" from shoulder to asymmetrical hem; this fits and drapes SO beautifully on the body, as you can see. Mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and a modern size 6/8 (36-26-36); this dress fits the mannequin PERFECTLY. Would look awesome on a 2 or 4 as well.
Condition: Perfect condition on the dress itself, I don't see any flaws, bright and clean, no spots, stains, rips or snags. The crepe underslip has a couple very small spots that may come out with cleaning, but since it doesn't show, these are insignificant. Label is intact "The Silk Farm Designed by Icinoo" label, plus marked a size 6. Matching scarf belt in perfect condition too.
