1936 Germaine Monteil Couture Movie Worn Navy Crepe Billow Sleeve Bias-Cut Gown


A breathtaking 1936 Germaine Monteil Couture navy crepe gown which was also worn by Anne Nagel in the Warner Brothers film "The Hockey King". In 1938, Monteil won a Neiman Marcus Fashion Award in recognition of her influence upon the fashion industry. This gorgeous Old Hollywood garment is a true example of her genius. The bodice has a high neck-tie that flows into voluminous sheer billow sleeves. I love the curved lines of the backless illusion. The piece work to create the skirting in particular is extraordinary. It is amazing that a dress with this amount of detail and presence can literally feel almost weightless but it does. An important piece of film and fashion history. Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:up to 36 inches Total Length:58 inches This Germaine Monteil movie worn documented gown is in excellent condition with no stains or discoloration. Perfectly working original side metal-hooks in place. The workmanship is immaculate and all hand-finished. Only sign of wear is a some minor pea-sized holes to a few areas of sheer illusion which are not noticeable when worn. Please message for detailed pictures. A true Old Hollywood designer investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
