Maggy Rouff 1930's Diaphaneous Beaded Dress, Gown & Cape in Magazine

About

Parisian designer, Maggy Rouff was the daughter of the couple that founded the House of Drecoll. In the late 20's she and her husband formed the House of Rouff in Paris. Her amazing intellectual prowess coupled with skillful fashion ingenuity produced designs of the 1930's that were innovative, feminine and elegant. What set Rouff apart from the other couturiers of the day was her ability to create an elegant frock and skillfully accent the garment in ways to draw attention and uniqueness to the dress. The result was her ability make a dramatic entertaining fashion statement with tremendous visual impact. A Maggy Rouff (label lost at cleaners) 30's evening ensemble fashioned of pale petal pink silk chiffon bias cut gown with a rich plum silk chiffon cape. An eye catching combination. Sleeveless bias dress with a nice sweep and train features bands of plum iridill beads at waist, shoulder and band above the triangular open back . The plum chiffon floor length cape is shirred at neckline and shoulders. Ensemble in excellent condition. A few versions of these Maggy Rouff ensembles with different capes were featured in magazines of the day of which this is one ( see ad). Bust: 36": waist: 30"; front length: 56"; back length: 59"; Condition: excellent; very light stains at hem and under arms; unlabeled; no under slip.
