1950's Eleanora Garnett Couture Strapless Print Brocade Pleated Party Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An incredibly grand and timeless cocktail party dress 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 unique fuchsia and green print-brocade fabric which in itself is so innovative. The bodice is an elegant fully-boned strapless with hourglass nipped-waist. The heavily pleated full circle-skirt finished this garment off with the perfect "femme fatale" vibe. This beautiful creation is pure wearable art at its best.

Measurements
Bust:32-33 inches
Waist:25 inches
Hips:Free Sweep
Length top to waist:11 inches
Length waist to hem:29 inches

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 side metal-zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
