Jean Dessès Haute Couture Pink Chiffon Dress, Circa 1965


A stunning example of Jean Dessès’ signature design style, this strapless pink chiffon dress is a fabulous party piece! With a sweetheart neckline, pleated bust and gathered chiffon skirt this is a beautifully crafted couture piece to treasure. The bodice is boned for extra support and a zip fastens up the side. Haute couture by Jean Dessès is the stuff of legend and his work is sought-after around the World. His draped chiffon ballgowns from the 1950s have graced red carpets around the World and Renee Zellweger notably wore a canary yellow Jean Desses to the Academy Awards in 2004. Dessès is considered by many to be one of the great masters of fashion of the 20th century and it was Dessès who trained both Valentino and Armani.
