Beautiful chocolate brown chantilly-lace cocktail by the famous House of Maggy Rouff dating back to the mid 1950's. Harmony and simplicity were cornerstones of Maggy Rouff's belief in elegance as a way of life, and the way of fashion. A truly elegant woman was in harmony with her environment and herself, and to Rouff this meant being properly dressed for every occasion. This did not mean she was conservative; rather, she believed novelty and surprise were good for fashion. This dazzling garment is a perfect example of her ideals. The bodice is a stunning low-cut plunge sweetheart illusion with classic 3/4-length sleeves. I love the satin buttons and bow which really give the dress so much depth and texture. The hourglass nipped-waist is meet by the most flattering scalloped swing-skirt. All hand-finished and a gorgeous investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
