Vintage 1950's Peggy Hunt Green Floral Silk Portrait-Collar Pleated Full Dress

About the Item

An amazing and highly stylized 1950's floral silk-faille dress by the famous American designer Peggy Hunt. Starting in the 1930's through the early 1960's, she was immensely successful with her specialized cocktail and evening looks. Her garments were often worn by Hollywood starlets such as Lucille Ball, Bette Davis, Lana Turner and Marlene Dietrich. This gorgeous olive-green watercolor floral number is a perfect example of her genius. The silhouette is classic "New Look" at its finest; the hourglass nipped waist flows into a playful pleated full sweep. The bodice has an ultra alluring wide portrait-collar which frames the figure beautifully. The back-bow detail adds the perfect amount of depth to the garment. You do not easily find this level of workmanship on garments today and this dress is a timeless classic for any modern event. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:Swing Sweep Total Length:44 inches This Peggy Hunt designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This garment is over 60 years old and is truly breathtaking.

    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. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; liquid silk velvet in the prettiest sapphire blue color. I adore the seductive criss-cross plunge bodice with lean, long zipper-wrist sleeves. The sparkling rhinestone-encrusted side buttons create the perfect amount of drama to this timeless piece. An hourglass nipped-waist skirt with side draping finishes this garment off with a perfect femme fatale vibe. It is an exquisite example of wearable luxurious from one of the most important houses of the modern era.
