1960s One Shoulder Silk Chiffon Jerry Silverman Dress

The Silverman company closed in 1978 and they donated their archives and clothing collection to the Kent State University which formed the start of the Museum there. It is always lovely to have apiece form a designer whose name will continue through the efforts of museums like that. This is a really spectacular one shoulder silk chiffon dress and is utterly and perfectly feminine. It is constructed of a pretty silk chiffon that flows and moved beautifully. The design that runs over it is amazing with a floral motif in pinks and blues. It is almost weightless and yet constructed so that it drapes on the body perfectly. The skirt is to the floor and has lots of fabric in it which gives it a very floating effect when you move. The waist is cinched under the fitted one shoulder bodice. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a pink silky rayon and closes with side painted metal zipper. Note that the zipper pull is gone but the zipper works perfectly so it has been left as original
