The sculptural elements on this silver-grey maxi dress made me stop dead in my tracks. 

This 80s dress (heavily inspired by the glam gowns of the 40s) by Liz Sheldon, Ltd. is made of a super slinky silk jersey fabric with ultra-dramatic pleated bustle at the back.

The dress is long sleeved, with a crew neck and structured shoulders (with shoulder pads). The bust and bodice on the dress are tailored, but not clingy, with a true, fitted waist. A plain, matching belt is included.

The skirt of the dress is columnar and hits at about the ankle for most heights.

On to the main event, the crinkles, the pleating --very reminiscent of Issey Miyake-- that wrap the waist of the dress in a large peplum, then cascade dow the back in a 'V' formation, the pleats give the illusion of being longer and more exaggerated near the hips, then receding to the bottom hem, but this is merely an illusion. 

I tried this dress on and was completely taken with how the pleats at the back, follow my movements and steps, creating the most intoxicating wake. I could stare and stare at this dress all day. It feels like a dream on.

Dress is unlined, with a hidden, nylon coil center back zipper closure.
