1950's Pauline Trigere Black Illusion Lace & Wool Crepe Cocktail Party Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

During the 1950's and 1960's, Pauline Trigère's name was part of the glamorous excess in Hollywood fashion. Her exquisite tailoring and feminine-fitting clothing were highly desired by the wealthy and famous. She could create dresses which fit like a glove; cut in an extremely flattering style. Trigère designs commanded some of the highest prices often because they were made with very expensive materials. This stunning black chantilly-lace and wool-crepe cocktail is a wonderful example of her genius. The bodice is a sculpted sweetheart illusion with elegant short-sleeves. I love the plunging effect which is also mirrored in the back. The hourglass nipped-waist is so flattering to the figure. The full swing skirt with scalloped hemline brings this garment to a whole new level. The perfect little black dress in a rare larger size!
