1950s Custom Indian Silk Screened Suit

I love the classic cut of this suit with it's box jacket and slim pencil skirt. And I could go on for days about the fabric! This was a custom made piece for a client that traveled to Bombay in the fifties and it is really one of the best example of silk from this period that I have seen! The skirt is a simple slightly A-line cut meant to skim over your curves and feel refined and classy. The jacket that classic fifties box cut and it has the most amazing buttons I have seen. I can only imagine the girl who had this made - how fabulous she must have been! Each button is an elaborate pointed dome, filigreed† and set with a polished turquoise stone! The print is a custom screened and a brilliant array of blues. It is simplicity mixed with extraordinary fabric. Excellent condition
