1950's Eleanora Garnett Couture Novelty Wood-Print Chiffon Pleated Dress

About

An incredibly grand and unique 1950’s haute-couture cocktail by the Italian Couture House of Eleanora Garnett. The House of Garnett had elegant boutiques in both Rome and New York during the 1950's. Her ready to wear pieces are hard to find, but her haute-couture is extremely rare. I love the novelty wood-print mocha silk-chiffon which in itself is so innovative. The bodice is an elegant fully-boned strapless illusion with 3/4-length sleeves. The skirting resembles a tree with the folders and heavy pleat-work. This beautiful creation is pure wearable art at its best.

This stunning Eleanora Garnett haute-couture cocktail is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. The inside is immaculate, fully-boned and all hand-finished. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
