Vintage 1950s Fuchsia Pink Satin Beaded Illusion Couture Cocktail Dress w/ Shawl

About the Item

In this gorgeous 1950's fuchsia pink party dress, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern couture. This garment almost mirrors the design of a 1955 Balenciaga which is housed at the Chicago History Museum. The ensemble is fashioned from lined mid-weight shimmer satin and a black semi-sheer chiffon. The bodice is an alluring shelf-bust illusion with flattering waist ruching. I love the beaded looped fringe detail which adds so much depth and texture. The pleated full skirt and matching shawl wrap totally channel the perfect "New Look" vibe. True feminine luxury will never go out of style. Measurements Bust: 33-34 inches Waist: 25 inches Hips: Free Sweep Total Length: 42 inches This 1950's custom couture dress ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working handset back metal-zipper. This garment is over 60 years old and is truly stunning.

  • Vintage 1970 Mainbocher Couture Vogue Documented Hot Pink Flocked Silk Dress
    By Mainbocher
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Gorgeous Mainbocher couture shocking pink abstract floral dress dating back to his 1970 collection. As shown, this design was modeled by Loulou de la Falaise for Vogue magazine. Mainbocher was a well-respected couturier who operated fashion houses in Paris and later New York from the 1930's through the 1970's. Mainbocher's arrival in New York coincided perfectly with the city élite's love for French couture, for though he epitomized it, he satisfied their patriotism because he was actually an American. The integrity of luxurious fabrics, intricate cut, quality workmanship were cherished by Mainbocher's upper crust customers. This mid 1960's dress is a perfect example of his genius. The fabric is a lush mid-weight velvet flocked silk satin. The 3/4-length sleeve buttons down bodice really compliments the classic nipped-waist silhouette. The dress can even be worn as a dramatic jacket if you choose to leave it unbuttoned. You get the effect of elegance and edgy at the same time. I love the sculpted mermaid skirting which really moves beautifully when worn. As Mainbocher once said "I have never known a really chic...
