This Carmen Marc Valvo dress carries that classic and elegant style of a beautiful black dress. Black strapless dress with a tiered/pleated bodice, and full skirt. Bodice is made up of cascading pleats to just below the waist where it falls into a fuller skirt. There is a crinoline under the skirt that starts below the hips for a subtle ball gown appearance. Very structured with inner corset to make sure everything stays in place.
