Vintage 1950's Doree Leventhal Couture Lilac Silk Beaded Strapless Belted Gown



In this gorgeous 1950's Doree Leventhal designer garment, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern haute-couture. This captivating gown is fashioned from ethereal lilac purple silk-faille complete with inner corset boning. Swirls of glass-beads and sequin in a leaf motif add the perfect amount of sparkle and texture. The bodice is an alluring asymmetric sculpted fold-over strapless which is heavily inspired by an iconic Christian Dior design. The silhouette is extremely flattering; a belted nipped waist met by a curved mock wrap-skirt to give illusion of a more hourglass body. A pure work of art and a study in dressmaking technique. Breathtaking and timeless. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:up to 42 inches Length top to waist:11 inches Length waist to hem:41 inches This Doree Leventhal Couture dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working side metal-zipper and inner corset boning. Signs of age is some natural wear to the fabric belt. Please message for detailed pictures. This desigenr gown is almost 70 years old and is truly exquisite.
