Social Climbing by Paco Rabanne
Amazing and most fun dress ever, by the one and only Paco Rabanne.
Completely black with geometrical cut out at the waist and high neck.
Definitely a statement dress and a stunner. Make an entrance with it and enjoy being the envy.
About the designer: Paco Rabanne was born in Spain, 1934, but his family moved to France during the Civil War.
He studied architecture in Paris, although he soon ventured into the world of fashion. His earliest contribution to fashion were his bold plastic jewellery and buttons which he sold to Balenciaga, Dior and Givenchy.
In 1965 he started his career as a designer by presenting a collection of 12 contemporary dresses which he called “the Unwearables”, including his first plastic dress. In 1966 Paco Rabanne opened his store, where he earned international repute for his metal-linked plastic-disc dresses and jewellery made of plastic in primary colours.
Paco Rabanne’s dresses and flamboyant designs stole the show in Paris and became known as “l’enfant terrible” of the 1960’s French fashion world.
