Long dress with a short train. Fitted to the body. Boat neck with straps that extend around the back to form a bow at the centre. The back has a U-shaped seam at the waist. Fastens at the centre of the back with a zip and a hook. Lined with silk taffeta.

Made in Spain, this evening dress stands out for the bright yellow satin and magnificently daring silhouette. In this design, the couturier contrasted the front and back, creating a fascinating dress. The constructive
and ornamental simplicity of the front contrasts with the sculptural appearance of the back, highlighted by the pleated skirt and the other decorative elements.
