1951 Bruxelles Custom Couture Black Silk Pintuck Strapless Puff Party Dress

About

Stunning 1951 custom-made couture bombshell cocktail dress from the famous "Old England of Bruxelles" label. The bodice is an alluring low-cut plunge fully-boned strapless. The graduated gores of silk, double tiered puff skirt give the garment so much sex appeal and interest. To this show-stopper, the designer added a dramatic asymmetric side peplum-swag. The construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of dress you will reach for anytime you want to look like a starlet! The perfect "little black dress". Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:36 inches Length top to waist:10 inches Length waist to hem:30 inches This custom-made designer couture garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This item is over 60 years old and is truly exquisite.
