#VD215 50s Silk Couture Gown / Dress / Balenciaga SOLD

Perfect for the red carpet, this gorgeous 1950's couture gown is in the style of Christian Dior, or perhaps Balenciaga, but there is no designer label. The woman whose estate this dress is from owned several Balenciaga gowns, and this one is couture made with lots of hand-sewn details and finishing, both inside and out. The silk has very subtle stripes in shades of lilac with teal, which appears almost iridescent. The fabric itself is fairly light weight with a satin finish and a little stiffness, but not like a taffeta. It was quite a task figuring out how the two top pieces fit over the boned bodice, but I think I got it right.
