|Normally we tell you that some of our elegant evening shawls can be worn in less formal occasions. With the OPERA, we say to heck with that and please wear this to an event where you wish to outshine everyone, or generally need to be bold and striking and need an accessory to match your mood. This shawl is smocked with an elastic thread that gives it some stretch, and means that over time it will loosen up from taut to ruffly drapes. A VERY chic designer for the Oscars with her own Haute Couture line uses these both for her runway shows as well as when she has personal events to attend. Pretty chic company huh? Approximately 90" long by 28" wide. Dry Clean Only.
