1940's Magenta Rose-Garden Floral Print Silk Couture Draped Evening Gown

About

In this gorgeous 1940's custom-made couture evening gown, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern haute-couture. This captivating garment is fashioned from rich rose-garden floral print silk in a stunning jewel-toned magenta pink color. The bodice is an alluring low-cut plunge sleeveless with hand-stitched ruching throughout. The silhouette is unbelievable; a flattering hourglass nipped-waist met by a voluminous ballroom skirt. I love the complex side-draping which totally channels the great work of Charles James and Cristobal Balenciaga. I totally imagine this show-stopper gliding down the red carpet!
