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



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.
