1950's Jean Desses Ivory-White Draped Silk Chiffon Back-Fishtail Goddess Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Jean Desses is one of the most important designers of the 20th century and was a designated Haute Couture house under the official Chambre Syndicate de la Couture. This exquisite 1950's goddess gown is a rare design made for the American market through Nanty. Fashioned from ethereal silk-chiffon and satin, this show-stopper has everything a woman wants. The bodice is a seductive low-cut plunge shelf-bust with full boning. The hourglass nipped waist flatters the figure while the sculpted draping looks breathtaking when you walk. I adore the backside bow-trimmed fishtail train which finishes this garment off with the perfect "new look" construction. The workmanship and time spent to design this masterpiece is astonishing.

This stunning Jean Desses for Nanty labeled designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. The garment closes with back metal-zipper and inner waist-stay. Light boning throughout the bodice to keep the hourglass shape. Only sign of age is some faint watermarks at the bottom hemline which are not noticeable when worn. A wearable investment piece that will continue to increase in value!
