1935 House of Worth Haute-Couture Beaded Velvet & Silk Illusion Belted Dress

About

This superlative couture beaded art-deco dress by The House of Worth is in a class of its own. Charles Frederick Worth died in 1895, when Jean-Philippe became head designer. For at least ten years prior to his father's death, Jean-Philippe designed alongside Charles. Paul Poiret considered Jean-Philippe to be a more creative couturier than his famous father. In 1924, with the House now operated by grandson Jacques Worth, it ventured into the perfume market as well. This breathtaking garment dating back to the mid-1930's is fashioned with a beautiful black semi-sheer silk net bodice and silk-velvet skirt. I adore the ruched-yoke and ascot bow-tie. The sleeves are gathered into sparkling polychrome beaded bands above red suede cuffs. The matching attached suede belt flows into the tailored skirt having a pleated center panel and interior hanging weights. The effortless shape really allows one to appreciate the brilliant textures. A rare piece of fashion history in museum quality. Measurements Bust:38-39 inches Waist:34 inches Hips:44 inches Total Length:46 inches This mid-1930's House of Worth couture dress is in excellent wearable condition with no stains, rips or holes. Only sign of age is some wear to the beading. Please message of detailed pictures. The level of work on this piece would only be found in the highest haute couture of today. Museum quality and an investment that will only go up in value.
