Not on view

Valentina, a prominent New York designer, often used jersey in evening gowns that she effortlessly shaped using inventive construction and drapery techniques. This example, worn by style arbiter Millicent Rogers and influenced by ancient Greek dress, exhibits Valentina's talent for creating minimalist, yet modern, designs, particularly illustrated in the tucks on the bodice which flow into elegant draped loops.
