Two-piece Origami Cocktail Dress 1980BC001A

This skirt and blouse in silk taffetas and silk crepe de chine, was presented for the spring-summer 1980 collection at Palazzo Barberini in Rome. It takes its name, Origami, from the fact that the skirt was inspired by a craft of pleated bicoloured paper. When in movement it gives an iridescent effect.
