During the 1950s and 1960s, Pauline Trigère's name was part of the glamorous excess in Hollywood fashion. Her exquisite tailoring and feminine-fitting clothing were highly desired by the wealthy and famous. She could create dresses which fit like a glove; cut in an extremely flattering style. Trigère designs commanded some of the highest prices often because they were made with very expensive materials. This stunning black silk-faille and wool cocktail is a wonderful example of her genius. The bodice is a sculpted asymmetric plunge with elegant cap-sleeves. An hourglass nipped waist flows into unique fishtail flounce skirting which brings the garment to a whole new level. The perfect "little black dress!
