1950's Madame Gres Metallic Rose-Print Silk Draped-Bubble Dress

About

Madame Gres felt that the true job of the couturier was not to create a name for one's self, as many designers do, but to pay rigorous attention to the clothing.This stunning dove-gray metallic rose-garden silk garment has so much detail,you can tell it was made with loving devotion.The bodice is a sheer-illusion plunge with sculpted cap-sleeves.The beautiful draped bubble full skirt shows the "new look" influence of the era. Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:46 inches This vintage couture dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes.Perfectly working back metal-zipper.Only sign of wear is slight discoloration to the velvet-ribbon. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning!
