About

Exquisite and extremely rare Paul Daunay cocktail dress, circa 1952-57. The dress is fabricated in a fine silk with an abstract floral print. Drop waist with full pleated skirt, fitted bodice, low back, v-neck and metal zip closure.

This evening dress is highly constructed and is a great example of the genius designs of 1950s haute couture. Paul Daunay dresses are very rare and have only been seen once in the Palais Galliera's Fifties fashion exhibition, shown alongside masters such as Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga.
