Check out these two dresses by painter, author, illustrator and fashion designer Michaele Vollbracht from the 1980s (when he had his line). I double take when I walk by them upstairs because the paintings printed on silk look so bright and whimsical. Iman, Elizabeth Taylor and Divine are icons who have worn his pieces and made them as collectible as they are today. The geisha dress with kimono sleeves is the more dramatic option while the knee-length one feels chill. Either way, when wearing these dresses, find reasons to move your arms throughout the night to make sure everyone sees the full designs.

 


 

 

Fun fact: Vollbracht's famous for designing Bloomingdales shopping bags.
