Vintage 1950's Marjon Couture Mauve Purple Silk Reverse-Halter Pleated Gown

About the Item

A gorgeous mid-century formal gown by the Marjon Couture London fashion house. The fabric used is of the highest quality; shimmering light-weight mauve purple lined silk. The bodice of this gown is an alluring sculpted sweetheart plunge that showcases a woman's captivating bustline. The complex pleat work and chic reverse-halter really set this gown apart from others during this time. A fitted nipped-waist gives the garment the most flattering silhouette. The full length knife-pleated skirting emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A timeless 1950's look that is perfect for any modern event. Bust: 35-36 inches Waist: 26 inches Hips: Free Sweep Total Length: 58 inches This 1950's Marjon Couture gown is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. Presents beautifully. Perfectly working side metal zipper and full lining. A pure work of art and a study in dressmaking technique. Only sign of age are some wear by the underarm seams which is not noticeable when worn. A wonderful wearable piece of fashion history.

    By Givenchy
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Givenchy, the name itself evokes glamour, refined elegance, simplicity and style. Givenchy's trademark of sculpted lines and luxurious fabrics make his work easily recognizable. This gorgeous cocktail, dating back to his 1990 Fall-Winter runway collection, is a beautiful example of his brilliance.
