Romantic mid-1950's white and rose-pink sculpted full skirted party dress by a great French couturier, Jacques Heim. The entire garment is fashioned from the highest quality floral pattern Chantilly-lace. The interior, complete with corset boning and hand-assembled lining, shows the true amount of devotion put into this beauty. I love the elegant satin one-shoulder which flows into an asymmetric back bow. The hourglass nipped-waist with full circle-skirt design certainly captures the playful elegance of couture during this era. Throughout Jacques Heim's life, he aggressively conceived of ways in which couture might be vital to new audiences. He brought garments to a young audience long before other couture designers and engendered early client loyalty. With the flattering silhouette and luxurious fabrics, this is a perfect example of Heim's vision of couture for all ages. The construction of this dress is impeccable and would even make a beautiful bridal moment.
