Vintage 80s Climax Karen Okada black party dress with a ruffled peplum bodice with statement sleeves, sequin and beaded trim on the front, and a low back. Sold as is with a few condition notes, see details below.

Measurements and Condition: 
 
Fits like: Labeled size 3/4, fits modern women's extra small
Fabric: Acetate with sequin and beaded trim, labeled dry clean only
Brand: Climax by Karen Okada for David Howard, made in California USA
Condition: Very good/as is, with a few sections of missing beading and sequins on the front, a couple tiny worn spots on the back of the waist, and one on the lower back of the skirt next to the slit. The straps fit slightly loose at the tops of the shoulders on the model (there doesn't appear to be any elastic inside the seams), but the dress could still fit fine if you fill out the bust, or you could shorten the straps slightly where they attach at the lower back if needed to fit a more petite frame.
Note that the seam above the back skirt slit had come undone and was repaired after the photos were taken - see close up photo for what it looks like now.

Length: 38.5"
Chest: 34"
Waist: 23.5"
Hips: 36" - taken at the bottom of the zipper opening

Shown on a 5’9” model with measurements of 33”-24”-37”, usually wears size XS to small. See our FAQ for more info on sizing and condition ratings.
