About

In this gorgeous 1957 Bergdorf Goodman custom-made gown, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern Haute Couture. Sonia was the label for designer Sophie Sonia Rosenberg who was commissioned by high-end New York department stores to create luxurious creations. This captivating garment is fashioned from vibrant ruby-red and black watercolor striped floral silk satin. The bodice is an alluring sculpted shelf-bust fully boned strapless. The hourglass nipped waist full-length skirt flows in a perfect "Old Hollywood" swing style. The gorgeous back bustle design gives the garment so much depth and texture. A pure work of art and a study in dressmaking technique. Breathtaking and timeless; I totally imagine this gliding down the red carpet.
