Vintage 1950's Oleg Cassini Black & Pink Polka Dot Silk Shelf-Bust Full Dress

About the Item

Oleg Cassini was a French-born American fashion designer who dressed numerous stars, creating some of the most memorable moments in international fashion and film. With his designs for Jacqueline Kennedy he garnered admiration and even awe, for American fashion design. This breathtaking 1950's black and pink pure-silk dress is a wonderful example of his genius. The bodice is a beautiful pleated shelf-bust sweetheart. I adore the polka-dot print which flows into an adorable back bow. The nipped waist full circle-skirt with ruffle hem silhouette is so flattering! This garment truly shows why he remains influential and predominant today. As Oleg Cassini once said, "Fashion anticipates...elegance is a state of mind." Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:46 inches This Oleg Cassini designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working side metal-zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning.
