1950's Jacques Heim Haute-Couture Pink White Lace One-Shoulder Full Party Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Ethereal light-pink and white sculpted party dress by a great French couturier, Jacques Heim. The entire garment is fashioned from the highest quality floral pattern chantilly-lace. The interior, complete with corset boning and hand-assembled lining, shows the true amount of devotion put into this beauty. I love the low-cut plunge sculpted satin one-shoulder bodice which flows into an asymmetric back bow. The hourglass nipped-waist with full circle-skirt certainly captures the playful elegance of fifties designer couture. Throughout Jacques Heim's life, he aggressively conceived of ways in which couture might be vital to new audiences. He brought garments to a young audience long before other couture designers and engendered early client loyalty. With the flattering silhouette and the fully-lined luxurious fabric, this is a perfect example of Heim's vision of couture for all ages.
