    Hi,

    This is a Rodier Paris dress, and I don't know if it's 80s because of the shape of the sleeves, but I am a bit clueless whether if it is or not.
    May somebody help?

    Thank you

    Hi. I did a trademark search and this is what I found... will not tell you exact age of item but you can use this to determine period or decade. Hope it helps.

    I replied. Was thinking same thing about the sleeves. Check trademark information.

    Hi Chiquita,
    I'll have a look to the web. Do I need to be registered?
    I tried to enlarge the photo but when I do I see it blurred. I never used this site and it may be interesting to start.
    Thank you

    This dress is a bit confusing but overall I’m getting an early 80s vibe with the thin elastic waist and with the 1/2 or 3/4 sleeves. Perhaps the elastic on the waist is shot making appear longer?

    Are there any other tags on the dress?

    Another good site for company info is trademarkia.com. Company info is helpful but most helpful in dating is design / cut, materials used and tags.

    Hi Deborah,

    I was thinking 70s-80s too... Do you mean the elastyc in the elastic on the waist looking like a drop waist? I think it does. (I hope I explain well what I mean, English is not my first language).

    Composition is poliester.
    I don't have another picture now but I will look for other tags to post it. There's one more, I think.
    Thanks so much for the info about the web .

    Looks 1981ish with the neo-romantic ruffle...

    I think the elastic at the waist is stretched out and needs replacing. That’s why it has the appearance of a lower waist (a dropped waist would be lower still).

    I trust Jonathan’s dating ;)

    Thanks for the tip about the waist. I'll look closer to that.
