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



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 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.
