1950's Bob Bugnand Paris Black & White Strapless Party Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Bob Bugnand worked as the chief designer for Jacques Heim and Robert Piquet before opening his own couture workroom in Paris. This stunning party dress is a proper example of his genius. The bodice is a low-cut plunge strapless with a couture inner-corset. Breathtaking pleated, pin-wheel, full, bow-trimmed skirt is structured in a perfect "new look" silhouette. It even comes with the matching tulle petticoat. I love the rich black silk-velvet against the ivory-white shimmer silk-faille. A timeless beauty that will work for any modern event.

Measurements
Bust:32-33 inches

This vintage designer-couture party dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zippers and inner-corset. Only sign of wear is faint aged-patina to the ivory silk-faille. This item is over 50 years old and is truly beautiful!
