1950s Metallic Silk Floral Cocktail Dress

I am shocked that this has no label as it is a superbly constructed dress and has all the details and styling of a very high end piece. The fabric is sublime - a metallic coral pink is mixed with a silver and gold thread to form a floral inspired design that runs through the fabric. There is a hint of gold in the undertone of the fabric and the dress has a subtle glow - very beautiful. The bodice is fitted and the front hand folded & stitched into place to create the perfect flat pleat detailing. The waist nips in and the skirt is wonderfully full! It has a built in layer of tulle under the inner lining. No extra crinolines where used in the styling shown here. The back skirting is constructed so that a small panel of fabric snaps into place to hide the zipper so the the visual line of the skirt is not broken. Stunning! Excellent condition! Item# 2-E249
