1950s Gigi Young Silk Print Wiggle Dress

Very pretty silk floral cocktail dress by Gigi Young, which was the sister label to the Suzy Perette line. I love the big watercolor washed floral print done in a high quality silk - it is the perfect combination of greens and blues! The shape is classic wiggle and is cut to fit every curve. The bodice drapes and is hand gathered with a wide cumberbund detail at the waist. The skirt is long and lean. Very flattering and very, very pretty! Excellent condition.
