Maggie Norris Haute Couture 1930's Inspired Bias Cut Silk Charmeuse Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This elegantly sexy bias cut silk charmeuse gown has all of the glamour of a vintage 1930's gown in a 21st century evening dress with gorgeous fabric and flawless construction. The sleeveless bodice with a low neckline front and back is very evocative of the 1930's. The bias cut panels over the hips allow the dress to be form fitting as well as very flattering. The bias cut skirt falls beautifully from the hip line. The dress has two long ties attached at the waistline. They are double wrapped in the photograph so you can have a longer sash if desired. The dress closes on the left side with an invisible zipper. It is in excellent condition and hand finished in the couture manner.
Maggie Norris Couture clothing has been exhibited at FIT as well as the City Museum of New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. After working as the Senior Design Director at Ralph Lauren for many years she established her own Couture Atelier in New York in 2000.
