Vintage 80s Diane Freis Balloon Sleeve Collage Dress
Beautiful 1980s abstract print dress by designer Diane Freis. Freis's designs were one size only comfortable elasticized waisted dresses that were non-crushable and would not wrinkle in a suitcase. These dresses were sold at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman as a travel solution for higher income jet setters. They were made as “one-size-fits-all” and accommodate sizes XS-XL through the flowy silhouette and elasticized smocked waist.
Vibrant blue, green, coral, and cream abstract pattern. Black and red polka dot print, black lace panels in circle skirt, and a double row of black ruffles at yoke/collar. Balloon sleeves end at quarter length. Very small pads at shoulders. Ties at neck with beads and tassels. A stunning dress, well-made and in perfect condition.
