1950's Don Loper Metallic Mocha Chiffon & Chantilly-Lace Dress

Don Loper, famously based in Hollywood, created gorgeous clothing from the 1930's into the 1960's. He designed the costumes for several films such as "The Big Combo" and "Looking for Love". In 1955 he was featured in an episode of the "I Love Lucy" show entitled – ‘The Fashion Show'. Loper was known for his lavish gowns and celebrity glamour. This breathtaking metallic-threaded mocha dress is a perfect example of his genius. The fabric is a fully-lined chantilly-lace appliqued silk-chiffon. I love the scalloped low-cut plunge hourglass nipped-waist bodice. The dramatic full circle-skirt finishes this garment off with a perfect "new look" silhouette.

Total Length:42 inches

This designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly exquisite.
