1950's Nettie Rosenstein Metallic Leopard-Print Strapless Full Party Dress

Nettie Rosenstein garments are very hard to come by and this stunning early 1950's light-weight metallic leopard-print silk party dress is a perfect example of her genius. I love the slightly ruched low-cut plunge boned strapless bodice. The nipped-waist belted skirt with side pockets has so much volume which gives the garment movement and allure.
In 1937, Rosenstein was described by Life Magazine as one of the most highly regarded American designers. In 1940, Rosenstein clothing was sold out of 92 shops and department at prices ranging from $100 to $500. Whilst these prices were far beyond the range of most consumers, Rosenstein's designs were so widely copied that she still influenced the average American woman's wardrobe.
