Breathtaking Jeanne Lafaurie Couture watercolor garden two-piece gown ensemble dating back to the mid-1950's era of fashion. Jeanne Lafaurie was a Paris couturier, designing from 1925 until 1958, whose house was known for spectacular fabrics and fine draping. Andre Courreges even worked there as a draftsman in 1947 before opening his own atelier! Michel Goma became the house designer from 1950-58, when he bought the house and renamed it. I adore the watercolor floral print silk-satin which in itself is wearable art. The bodice is a seductive sculpted strapless with boning. The matching nipped-waist, long, slightly-pleated ballroom skirt finishes this masterpiece off with the perfect ethereal vibe.
