Dress

Franco Moschino, Designer (Italian, 1950-1994)


A great example of Moschino’s mastery of cut and construction, this evening dress is made from men’s heavy wool suiting fabric. It is constructed to appear like a man’s suit jacket pieced into a strapless fitted dress, with the lapel at the neckline and the front pocket placed sideways on the dress.

(Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Chicago, Illinois), 21 September 2008, lot 170; purchased by the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 2009.
