Gorgeous Harvey Berin designer silk-satin formal dress dating back to the early 1950's. 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 gowns and ensembles. As Karen Stark said, "I like to use beautiful fabrics and unusual trimmings. I design for everyone, but always very feminine women." This stunning embroidered ivory dress, purchased from Bonwit Teller, is a perfect example of their genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; sparkling ruby-red beadwork and velvet soutache embroidery in a rose floral motif on mid-weight silk satin. The bodice is a flirty low-cut plunge sculpted boned strapless. The flattering nipped-waist full skirting, with wide boarder detail, finishes this garment off with the perfect "new look" silhouette. A special vintage dress that is perfect of any upcoming modern wedding or formal event.
