1950's Lilly Dache Couture Red Silk-Faille Cocktail Dress & Matching Swing Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Lilly Dache numbered couture garments are rare, unique and highly collectible. With its rich raspberry-red shimmering silk-faille and flawless hourglass silhouette, this cocktail dress ensemble has the casual elegance the 1950's were known for. I love the sleeveless bow nipped-waist bodice and flattering swing skirt. The matching coat is so versatile and timeless. Check out the cuffed-sleeves & dramatic portrait-collar. Dache is reported to have said, "Glamour is what makes a man ask for your telephone number. But it also is what makes a woman ask for the name of your dressmaker." This is the type of set that oozes allurement. It is clear why Lilly Dache dressed iconic bombshell movie-stars including Marlene Dietrich, Caroline Lombard and Loretta Young.
