1950's Serge Sinclair Paris Couture Red-Roses Flocked Satin Sculpted Dress

About

Serge Sinclair Paris was one of the elite couture houses operating during the 1950's New Look movement. This breathtaking garment, all hand-stitched, is fashioned from luxurious red-roses floral flocked silk satin. The fabric itself is so opulent, I wouldn't be surprised if this dress was designed for a lady of great importance. The bodice is an elegant scoopneck short-sleeve design with hourglass nipped-waist. The heavily sculpted full skirt with backside flounce is just as magnificent. Couture collectors are often drawn initially to the brilliance of vintage textiles. The mix of stunning fabric, along with its complex construction, makes this cocktail a Parisian rarity. Measurements Bust:36-37 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:up to 42 inches Total Length:44 inches This 1950's Serge Sinclair Paris Couture cocktail dress is in excellent wearable condition with no stains, rips or holes. The inside is immaculate and all hand-finished. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This designer garment is truly exquisite and an investment piece that will only increase in value.
