MOST WANTED: Purple satin bows bustier Elizabeth Taylor gown

This is one of my all time favorite gowns that Nolan did for Elizabeth, and thus one of my all time favorite gowns created by Nolan.  This gown really symbolizes the union of Nolan Miller's design for his muse Elizabeth Taylor.  The cut of the gown is the same custom design Nolan created for Elizabeth, in rich satin fabric, and in her signature color-- purple.  Elizabeth wore this gown for her Passion perfume campaign and also wore it to several events.  Faux violets were added to the shoulders of the gown later on.  Per usual, I prefer this gown without the later alteration and addition of the flowers.  Why tamper with perfection?  The sketches for this gown are absolutely stunning as well.  There are at least two different sketches for this gown.  The only real difference is one sketch appears to be more detailed and a bit more dramatic.

WANTED: If anyone has this gown, or any information on its whereabouts, please let me know!
