Herein the tale of a vintage skirt. This Marc Jacobs, Eight Gore, Full Circle, 100% Silk Taffeta Skirt, Made in Korea, is from one of Marc's first seasons under his own label in the 1986-87 period. I know this because I bought it back then. At that time, Macy's flagship store in Manhattan had introduced a small, new designer department, with clothes from upcoming and/or hyped designers from England, Europe, and the U.

I worked in the fashion industry and spent many a lunchtime browsing or shopping in that little area, which is when I bought the skirt. It wasn't a later date because (a) Jacobs joined the women's design group of Perry Ellis in 1988 and (b) I was pregnant in 1989 and no longer clubbing it in the city (which is when I wore the skirt). So, this is definitely from Marc's first collection(s) under his own name/label. Skirt is 37-1/2 long, measured from bottom of waistband to hemline.

Size is 8 with the letters CDN under the size on the label. I measured the waist to be approximately 27-1/2" to 27-3/4", measuring it with the button fastened. Tag under size tag says: CA 02416, RN 68644, Style/Modele 2551, 100% Silk/... 3 letters that I can't read. See photo, Dry Clean/Only, Made in Korea. Entire hemline is stiffened with "horsehair" trim. I doubt I wore the skirt more than half a dozen times (probably less) and it is in excellent condition. Only flaws I see are that one ribbon loop for hanging the skirt has snapped, and the button is a replacement. There are also a couple of tiny holes under the button and button hole where I obviously emergency pinned it.

I've included a photograph but please be aware that the size of the holes appear greatly exaggerated because of the close-up nature of the photograph. Please see all my photographs and consider them part of the description. Obviously, anything else in the photographs used to prop up or hold skirt are not included in this sale.
