1950's Suzy Perette Metallic Silver Lame Sculpted Full Circle-Skirt Party Dress

About

Sparkling Suzy Perette designer metallic silver lamé cocktail party dress dating back to the mid 1950's. Suzy Perette was not an actual person, but the name of a dress manufacturing company that made affordable versions of haute-couture Parisian designs. The Suzy Perette silhouette of cinched nipped waists and full circle skirts were extremely popular and a quality interpretation of Dior's famous New Look. This breathtaking garment has the most flattering plunging scoopneck with paulette shoulder detail. I love the hourglass nipped waist with sculpted front construction. A timeless classic for an modern event!
