1950s French Unlabelled Couture Tulle Dress With Crystal Rhinestones

About

This beautiful vintage 1950s dress showcases some incredible embellishment detail with ivory tulle appliqué ribbon work on a silver/grey tulle base featuring scattered bugle beads and prong set crystal rhinestones. This intricate abstract floral design is more intricate and focused around the bodice and broadens gradually towards the calf length skirt. Although unlabelled, this French couture dress resembles work by both Cristobal Balenciaga and Pierre Balmain. It has a pleasing weight to it, exciting a sense of glamour and features a low back neckline with a central zip to fasten at the reverse. A wonderful aesthetic for formal occasion wear, it would be a lovely choice for alternative bridal wear also. It is a truly magnificent piece in very good to excellent vintage condition. There have been some well executed repairs to the tulle and these are only visible on very close inspection and only mentioned for accuracy. The dress is photographed without an underskirt but would be enhanced with one. Would best suit US size 4, UK size 8.
