1950's Bob Bugnand Paris Black & White Strapless Party Dress
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.
Waist:up to 25 inches
Length top to waist:10 inches
Length waist to hem:28 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!
