1980s dusty rose evening gown by Carol Peretz.

I would love to describe this dress for you, but it is best coming from the words of the actual designer, who contacted me on etsy to tell me about this special creation:

"Hi--I am Carol Peretz. I designed and made this dress around 1990-1992. The pure silk is Italian crepe satin jacquard. It is not brocade. It is a leno weave. The fabric was designed and woven exclusively for me, and has tiny pretzel logos woven into the design. That is the authentication.

The lace is US made guipure. At that time the US had a high quality lace industry based in New Jersey. The crystals are Swarovski. The dress sold for around $1000 in 1990. I sold this design to Neiman Marcus, I Magnin, and many fine specialty shops. In current sizing it is a 0-2."
