Vintage 1940's Harry Cooper of Hollywood Ivory Sequin Chiffon Halter Bridal Gown



Ethereal Harry Cooper designer ivory-creme gown dating back to the 1940's Old Hollywood era of glamour. Definitely something Lana Turner or Veronica Lake would wear! This stunning silk-chiffon dress has so much couture detail, you can tell it was made with expert devotion. Handcrafted sequin work cascades down the garment is a beautiful gradient design. The low-cut scoopneck bodice has a unique duel strap halter. I love the hourglass nipped-waist which flows into a beautiful full sweeping dance skirt. Truly, this gown would have taken weeks to finish. You can definitely wear this show stopper to any red carpet event or it would make the dreamy bridal look for a modern wedding. Measurements Bust: 35-36 inches Waist: 28 inches Hips: up to 40 inches Total Length: 56 inches This mid-1940's Harry Cooper designer gown is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, holes or discoloration. Presents beautifully. Perfectly working original side metal zipper. After close inspection, we found a few missing sequins which is not noticeable when worn. Please e-mail for detailed pictures. A rare museum quality treasure you will cherish for years to come.
