1955 Maggy Rouff Haute Couture Ice Blue Beaded Metallic Silk One-Shoulder Gown

About

Beautiful ice-blue beaded metallic silk and satin gown by the famous House of Maggy Rouff. This gorgeous garment dates back to their 1955 haute couture collection. Harmony and simplicity were cornerstones of Maggy Rouff's belief in elegance as a way of life, and the way of fashion. A truly elegant woman was in harmony with her environment and herself, and to Rouff this meant being properly dressed for every occasion. This did not mean she was conservative; rather, she believed novelty and surprise were good for fashion. This dazzling garment is a perfect example of her ideals. The bodice is a stunning asymmetric one-shoulder corset hourglass construction. I love the metallic floral patterned silk-lame which really gives the dress so much depth and texture. The side bow is meet by the most flattering column draping technique. As pictured, the garment is very similar to Christian Dior's 1954 'Angelique' design. All hand-finished and a gorgeous investment piece that will continue to increase in value. Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:37 inches Total Length:55 inches This Maggy Rouff haute couture gown is in very good condition with no rips, holes or alternations. Perfectly working back painted metal-zippers and inner corset. Only signs of age are a few faint watermarks to the back skirting and some minor discolor by the underarm seam which are not noticeable when worn. This rare piece of wearable art is over 60 years old and is truly sensational.
