With its gorgeous green insect novelty print and flawless styling, this rare Tina Leser dress has the casual elegance the 1950's were known for. Tina Leser (1910-1986) was an American fashion designer who helped pioneer unique sportswear and was particularly known for her global influences. The print itself is a masterpiece; olive green tropical insect motif with metallic gold ribbon trim. I adore the pleated asymmetric one-shoulder sash shawl design with button down side closure. My favorite part is the belted nipped waist full swing skirt with over-sided side pocket. For every woman, novelty prints are a fashion must-have. It's a style for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless. An extraordinary piece of wearable art.
