In this gorgeous 1950's Doreé Leventhal designer garment, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern haute-couture. This captivating gown is fashioned from ethereal lilac purple silk-faille complete with inner corset boning. Swirls of glass-beads and sequin in a leaf motif add the perfect amount of sparkle and texture. The bodice is an alluring asymmetric sculpted fold-over strapless which is heavily inspired by an iconic Christian Dior design. The silhouette is extremely flattering; a belted nipped waist met by a curved mock wrap-skirt to give illusion of a more hourglass body. A pure work of art and a study in dressmaking technique. Breathtaking and timeless.
