1950s Fox Trim Velvet Suzy Perette Dress

This dress is fantastic. The body of the dress is plush, rich velvet in a true deep black. The cut is fitted and fabulous with the waist defined by vertical seaming. The neck is scooped and the sleeves to the elbow. It is cut to skim over and follow a girls curves in the most fabulous and sexy of ways! This is all fantastic in its own right but to that they added an insanely glamorous and luxurious 5" trimmed bottom done in a rich fox fur, dyed to a ebony color! It is an amazing example of the luxury and decadence you can find in vintage and in excellent condition
