1950s Couture Pink Petal Dress & Jacket

Stunningly beautiful silk satin petal dress is absolutely to die! Ingenious example of the care to construction and the high level of execution of the period. The fabric alone is brilliant - it changes from a soft pale pink gradually deepening as it nears the petalled hem to a deep true pink. The jacket does the opposite with a deeper hue at the shoulders and then gradually softening at the waist to match the color of the dress. The jacket is a stunning, sculptural masterpiece with curves shoulders and seaming to create a fitted, yet rounded shape. The dress is just magnificent - a simple strapped bodice tops that stunning petalled skirt - the petals change not only color but size - starting as small petals around the waist to huge and gorgeous ones at the final bottom layer. The high level of workmanship that would be required to make a piece like this is astonishing! It's a gorgeous, unusual and wonderful set. Excellent condition
