A gorgeous mid-century formal gown by the nearly impossible to find Italian couturier Mingolini Guggenheim. As you can see, this designer was heavily influenced by Christian Dior and any French inspired fashion pieces from this period are true collector items. The fabric used is of the highest quality; mid weight champagne pink silk-faille with the finest interior boned corset. The bodice of this gown is an alluring pleated strapless that showcases a woman's captivating bustline. The fitted nipped-waist with bow detail gives the garment the most flattering silhouette. The full-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the ballgown you will reach for anytime you want to look and feel timeless.
