Vintage 1950s Harvey Berin Pale-Pink Lace Illusion & Silk Flounce Cocktail Dress

About the Item

Absolutely gorgeous Harvey Berin designer cocktail dress dating back to the late 1950's. I'm so in love with that pale blush-pink color! Harvey Berin opened his business in 1921, and by the 1940's he was an important name in women’s high fashion. His designer, Karen Stark, adapted the latest styles from Paris each season. I can definitely see the Christian Dior influence. As Karen Stark said, "I like to use beautiful fabrics and unusual trimmings. I design for everyone–but always very feminine women.” This ethereal pale blush-pink French Chantilly lace and silk satin cocktail is a perfect example of their genius. I love the elegant low cut scoop shelf-bust illusion boned bodice with duel side-bows. The hourglass nipped waist flows into a fantastic sculpted wiggle flounce. This dress would make such a lovely bridal or wedding guest look! The pictures say it all. Measurements Bust: 33-34 inches Waist: 26 inches Hips: up to 36 inches Total Length: 42 inches This Harvey Berin designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper and skilled bodice boning. A wearable investment piece that will continue to increase in value.

  • Vintage 1990s Nolan Miller Couture Ivory Embroidered Silk Strapless Mermaid Gown
    By Nolan Miller
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    A breathtaking Nolan Miller Couture unworn with tags embroidered silk organza sculpted bridal gown dating back to the early 1990's. Nolan Miller was an acclaimed costume designer best known for his work on the long-running series Dynasty. Miller was nominated six times for an Emmy Award, winning 'Outstanding Costumes' in 1984 for the Dynasty series, which also set a fashion trend for glamorous high society gowns. This stunning Nolan Miller creation from his exclusive couture line is the perfect solo in the spotlight 'Barbie Doll' bridal look. This showstopper has serious allure with that hourglass mermaid silhouette. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; the highest quality large-scale ivory floral cutwork embroidered silk organza with a matching ivory silk underlay. I adore the fully corset boned satin trimmed sweetheart plunge strapless with adorable back-bow. A curved nipped waist with fitted mermaid slightly trained skirting creates the perfect amount of drama to this timeless garment. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day haute couture. This would make an epic red carpet or wedding moment.
