Breathtaking Harvey Berin designer documented black silk-chiffon full circle skirt party dress dating back to 1957. Not only is this look totally timeless, but she still has her original store tags attached from over 60 years ago! Harvey Berin opened his business in 1921, and by the 1940's he was an important name in women's fashion. His designer, Karen Stark, adapted the latest styles from Paris each season. They were best known for their ladylike evening dresses and ensembles. As Karen Stark said, "I like to use beautiful fabrics and unusual trimmings. I design for everyone, but always very feminine women." The fabrics used for this dress are pure genius; yards and yards of the finest silk-chiffon with scalloped chantilly lace over the palest pink silk. The bodice has the flirty sweetheart plunge that flows into a elegant bow trimmed low backside. The flattering hourglass nipped waist full circle-skirt finishes this garment off with the perfect "new look" silhouette. A classic look for an modern vixen.
