A gorgeous mid-century formal gown by the Marjon Couture London fashion house. The fabric used is of the highest quality; shimmering light-weight mauve purple lined silk. The bodice of this gown is an alluring sculpted sweetheart plunge that showcases a woman's captivating bustline. The complex pleat work and chic reverse-halter really set this gown apart from others during this time. A fitted nipped-waist gives the garment the most flattering silhouette. The full length knife-pleated skirting emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A timeless look that is perfect for any modern event.
