Iconic 1969 Pierre Cardin Carwash Dress

The iconic Carwash Dress is one of the most coveted and hard to find pieces by the master of space age design: Pierre Cardin. A definite must-have for any vintage collector. High empire waist with with heavy-weight fringed tendrils secured at the hem. Of course the clincher though is the amazing "birdcage-like" movement! This piece graces the permanent collections of many museums including The Met, The Museum at FIT and Fine Arts of Boston.

Very good vintage condition. At some point in time, the piece has had the hem re-tacked and is missing approximately 1" of hem tape on the inside of the hem (not visible when worn). We also found one tiny 2mm blemish beneath the fringe in the back. There is very minimal fading considering this piece is almost 50 years old! Please feel free to email for additional photos.
