Rare Early 1950's New Look Pauline Trigere Navy Blue Lace Evening Dress / Small

| /

👋 A B O U T

One of the loveliest designer dresses I have seen! Rare early 50's/ late 40's New Look period lace evening dress by legendary designer Pauline Trigere. Featuring a sculpted lace bodice, covered buttons up the front, a 40's era lace peplum and multi-layered full net skirt lined in silk taffeta. Trigere's work is featured in museums around the world and she is considered one of the most important mid-century fashion designers. This rare dress is a beautiful example of her work and in excellent condition. Freshly dry cleaned and ready to wear. 

(original belt is missing, we have found a belt from the same time period in a color that matches. We will include it with your purchase. Ideally a navy blue silk belt from the 50's would be best.)
