1950's Pierre Balmain Mauve-Pink Lace Tulle Illusion Side-Bow Full Party Dress

About

Pierre Balmain worked under Robert Pigiuet, Molyneux, and Lucian Lelong, where he worked closely with Christian Dior. In 1945 is finally opened his own couture house. Balmain created a very sculptural quality which was always allied with a ladylike essence. His glamorous garments were worn by the likes of Bridget Bardot, Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich. Balmain's garments have a body and a shape of their own. This breathtaking lace and net-tulle party dress is a perfect example of his genius. The fabric is pure heaven and the construction is couture-level as one would expect from Pierre Balmain. The color is an ethereal mauve-pink with a gorgeous dove-grey undertone. The bodice is a low-cut plunge sweetheart illusion with flattering cap-sleeves. I adore the hourglass nipped-waist met by a sculpted side velvet bow full swing-skirt! A timeless treasure in a rare larger size! Measurements Bust:41-42 inches Waist:34 inches Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:47 inches This stunning Pierre Balmain designer couture garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working hand-set side metal zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
