1954 Traina-Norell Embroidered Leaves Motif Mocha Silk-Organza Full Party Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This exquisite 1954 "Traina-Norell" rare designer dress fashioned from embroidered branch-like leaves motif print silk-organza exemplifies their signature blend of couture level quality with quintessentially American style- elegant in its simplicity. The bodice has an alluring thin-straps plunge with an adorable satin bow-tie waist. The dramatic full circle-skirt with original petticoat underpinning finishes this garment off with a perfect "new look" silhouette. As pointed out in the book "Couture: The Great Designers", Norell had a profound influence on the ready-to-wear industry and on younger American designers by insisting that off-the-rack clothing be as fine as made-to-order. The masterful construction and superb quality of this garment more than meets his exacting standards.
