1960's Norman Norell Black & Pink Sequin Evening Tea-Gown Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This timeless "Norman Norell" designer evening dress in sequin silk-organza exemplifies his signature blend of couture level quality with quintessentially American style?elegant in its simplicity. The sequins are individually hand-sewn, which must have taken days to complete. The bodice is a flattering sculpted scoopneck with a nipped hourglass waistline. I love the full bell-shaped skirt which totally channels "Old Hollywood" glamour. As pointed out in the book "Couture: The Great Designers", Norell had a profound influence on the ready-to-wear industry and on younger American designers by insisting that off-the-rack clothing be as fine as made-to-order. The masterful design and superb quality of this garment more than meets his exacting standards.
