Ultra Chic 1950s Formal Gown with Velvet Trim

$ 250.00

Vintage 1950s

Vintage 1950s formal gown with silk velvet trim and black jet bead fringe. This fabulous gown has a built in crinoline with a contrasting red gros-grain ribbon trim. The dress is made of an amazing fabric: very stiff taffeta which gives it so much structure. The stiff fabric really shapes the body and flares beautifully. This style of dress represents a dramatic take on the classic fit and flare look of the era. The soft draped silk velvet trim features bows on the sleeves and is shaped into a soft v-neck in the front and back. This dress looks even better on - pair it with a stiff cocktail and a pair of heels!

Condition: Good vintage condition. The dress has no holes or snags and the velvet is still very soft to the touch. There are some light scuffs on the front of the dress (I can't tell if it's from dust or from improper storage). These scuffs aren't too noticeable (see photos), and overall the dress is still very wearable!
