Breathtaking Philip Hulitar couture black velvet and ivory satin evening gown dating back to the late 1950's. Hulitar's brilliance has been known to fashion cognoscenti for years. His work is eagerly sought after by collectors who appreciate wearable art and high quality construction. The bodice has a gorgeous structured plunge with chic duel-straps. As you can see, this design was greatly inspired by the iconic 1955 Yves Saint Laurent for Christian Dior "Soirée de Paris" creation. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out in a beautiful skirted overlay hourglass design. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture.
