1960s Silk Mermaid Gown

Drama drama drama is what this 1960s gown and jacket from the Californian Helga label. The husband wife duo were known for their evening wear and it is easy to see why when you see this gown! It is made to fit like a glove and is all bombshell curves. Strapless and boned it curves down past the hips like a glove and then flares out in the most dramatic mermaid skirt, stiffened so the shape is really emphasized! A little jacket in a matching floral textured silk has rounded edges and a simple silhouette. A real eye catcher and a wonderful piece!
