Museum Worthy 50s Jacques Heim Attributed Black Cocktail Dress with Low Back (S)

About the Item

Absolutely beautiful couture workmanship with amazing detail including inside net bodice; boned neckline (including back) and shoulder straps; plunging back; hidden zip closure at back with a bow at top, and large bow in front. The weight of the fine wool material gives shape to the dress. The price reflects the fact that there is no label or tags of any sort. I have had this dress for many years in my private collection and I acquired it along with several other Jacques Heim items. Museum Quality
