1953 House of Worth Haute-Couture Magenta Abstract Print Silk Shawl-Collar Dress


This gorgeous House of Worth Haute-Couture cocktail ensemble, dating back to their 1953 collection, is in a class of its own. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; vibrant feather-light silk in a unique magenta and black abstract garden motif. The bodice has a stunning scoopneck plunge with ruched short sleeves and detachable portrait shawl-collar. I adore the hourglass nipped-waist. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and finishes with a chic slightly pleated back fishtail. The architectural shape really allows one to appreciate the brilliant texture. A rare piece of French fashion history in beautiful museum quality. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:39 inches Total Length:42 inches This House of Worth Haute-Couture dress in excellent wearable condition with no stains, rips or holes. The inside is immaculate and hand-finished. Perfectly working back hand-set metal Eclair zipper. The level of work in this piece would only be found in the highest couture of today.
