    Pre-owned 1950s Spectacular Beaded Bonwit Teller Dress
    Once in a while a dress comes along that just takes your breath away and this is one of those times. This is a spectacular dress and capelet ensemble that I would bet my last vintage dollar once also had a designer label from one of the important houses of the day. The workmanship and quality and sheer beauty of it are mind boggling. The fabric is the star here with a green silk floral print base that has a soft metallic sheen worked through it. Over this are vertical bands that start at the hem and go up the entire dress. Each band is a wide swath of a very fine, metallic silk brocade that is edged in silver rows of tube beads and has large 3D bead flowers hand formed and running in a tightly spaced design around the dress within each row. This adds a substantial amount of weight to the dress but once on it is perfectly balanced and feels far from heavy. The cut is simple and fitted with wide straps and a straight across neckline. The cape just covers the shoulders and is an absolute gem - almost like topping the dress with a jewel rather then fabric. The construction is marvelous and it is really and truly a special pieces. Excellent condition. Fully lined in silk - silk taffeta through the body and cape and a silk satin through the bodice. Ribbon finished edges. Lightly boned through the bodice. The cape closes with a fabric covered snap and the dress with a back painted metal zipper. Hand finished interior. You could potentially tuck down the straps and wear this strapless as well. Dress Bust: 17.5 " flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 16" from top of shoulders to waist Skirt: 30" from waist to hem Cape Shoulders: to 17" (you could adjust the snap to get perfect fit across) Width: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 10" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.

    Pre-owned Dolce Gabbana Chiffon Floral Corset Gown
    Romantic silk chiffon 1930's inspired dress by Dolce Gabbana. The gown is bit complicated to describe but is essentially a double dress....a chiffon overdress mounted onto a stretch silk satin corset slip dress. The corset is visible through the sheer chiffon which gives this dress its edge. A built in padded bra pushes the bosom out and tiers of silk chiffon ruffles fall from the neckline and from the "capelet" collar which falls from the shoulders. When the ruffles move the satin corset becomes visible. Very D+G in spirit. The corset keep the silhouette trim and the sheer chiffon floats over it. There is train at the back of the gown which can be buttoned up for practical purposes. The chiffon even has the Dolce Gabbana signature printed into the lush florals. Length 57". Additional train adds 12". Corset: Bust 30-32", Waist 26", hip 32". Slip measures 51". Size 44, Italian.

    Pre-owned Caterina Gatta Gown
    Caterina Gatta Each fabric has its own story to tell,says Caterina Gatta of the unused bolts of fabulously ornate late 80's and 90's silks from the likes of Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, and Gianni Versace that she then recycles into the kind of slip-on-and-you-are-good-to-go dresses, blouses, and skirts that let the fabrics do all the talking. I like to be respectful to the designers, Gatta says, but I also don't want to refer to what they did with them. The 27-year-old Roman started out in 2008 when she came across a length of fuchsia geometric-print plisse silk by Irene Galitzine-One of the most important designers during the La Dolce Vita period, she explains helpfully-and whipped it up into a dress for herself, and before long, others wanted something new from something old , too. And while she will happily chat about her vintage-collecting bug(she bought a late-seventies YSL green evening dress from a Roman market), Gatta is rather more secretive about where she gets those treasured fabrics. That's understandable. She'll often only be able to source at most about 30 yards, enough for 10 dresses. The past might speak, but it can't shout. Mark Holgate Vogue May 2011 Beautifully draped of a kind floor sweeping gown hand sewn of vintage Versace Medusa print silk by Italian designer Caterina Gatta. Pleated fan style attached capelet.

  • Pre-owned Late 1940s Norman Hartnell Attr Couture Net Gown
    More info
    Pre-owned Late 1940s Norman Hartnell Attr Couture Net Gown
    This gown and matching stole are absolutely beautiful and a testament to the man who would become the appointed designer to the Queen of England. Norman Hartnell was one of the British Couturiers who dressed the royals and the aristocrats. London's couture industry established itself after the 1st World War and distinguished themselves from the court dressmakers by presenting seasonal collections. Hartnell opened his couture house in 1923. By 1947 his house was thriving and he was dressing the British Royalty. He was best known for his romantic evening dresses and this dress is a perfect example of that period. This gown is not labeled however, it was originally bought at auction and attributed as Hartnell in 2010 from Kerry Taylor auctions and that has been verified by myself. The dress is entirely made of silk tulle netting and has the sweeping lines that he was renowned for during this period. The top is sleeveless with an almost balletic feel to it. Inner layers of silk retain a girl's modesty. Note that the inner layer sits very low on my mannequin's bust however it was a touch big on her and I do not like to over-pin. It will sit properly on a girl it fits better. The back is cut quite low and reveals an expanse of skin. The skirt sweeps the floor and literally has yards and yard of tulle that make it up. There is also a separate black tulle underskirt to add further volume (note that it was not photoed with this underskirt so the skirt will be more full if worn with this). The skirt is adorned with raw edged ruffles of tulle scattered across its service and then adorned with scattering of beads to catch the light. The matching capelet flows down the back is worn off the shoulders on the arm. It too is adorned with the same bead and tulle detailing. It is very romantic and very beautiful and a true piece of fashion history. Museum quality. The bodice has an inner lining made of a blue and a pale pink silk chiffon with a slight texture running through it. It closes with a back metal zipper. The skirt is comprised of 3 layers - the outer silk belt with embellishment, a blue silk net layer under that, then a blue silk chiffon layer and an inner pale pink layer. The extra skirting is made of black silk tulle net and closes with hook & eye. Has its original tie silk net belt. Hand finished throughout Bust: 18-19" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13-15" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: open Bodice: 18" from top of bodice to drop waist Skirt: 40" from drop waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.

    Pre-owned 1970s Gina Fratini Ombre Silk Glitter Gown with Train
    A Gina Fratini bluish gray ombre silk chiffon evening gown fabricated from three interconnected layers and embellished with allover silver glitter in a geometric pattern. The romantic feel of the dress is based in its unique elements and fabric-dying technique but essentially, it a light grey silk spaghetti strap bandeau bodice dress underneath a blouson capelet sewn into the waist (and forming drapey sleeves) and a double layer silk skirt terminating in a train at the back. Employing the Ombré technique, the skirt is dip dyed to gradually shift color - from slate gray to a light and watery hue. There is a zipper closure at the back, hook and eye as well as two long ties to fasten the cape. Overall good condition with some areas of wear to the chiffon and some minor holes in the long back train - probably where someone's heel went through the fabric. And some minor glitter loss throughout. There is no size tag so please consult the measurements. Gown is cut on the bias and has some stretch so there will be some room in the measurements. Labeled: Gina Fratini / Daisy Munich. Measurements: Bust - 34" Waist - 30" Hips - 40" Length (Strap top to hem back) - 64"

    Pre-owned 1960's Galanos Novelty Fish-Print Silk-Chiffon Cocktail Dress
    Dedication to excellence in craftsmanship and design was the foundation of James Galanos' career. The quality of workmanship found in his clothing is unsurpassed in America today. It may seem a contradiction that his sophisticated, mature and elegant clothing were designed and produced in Southern California, traditionally the land of sportswear. But Galanos was satisfied to remain where he began his business in 1951, a continent away from New York and the center of the American fashion industry. This stunning "light as a feather" scenic fish-print novelty silk-chiffon goddess cocktail is a perfect example of his talent. I love the draped capelet bodice and seductive backless design. The hourglass belted waist compliments the yards and yards of flowing silk-chiffon used for the skirt. For every woman, a print cocktail are a fashion must-have. It's a style for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:38 inches Total Lenght:36 inches This vintage designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This item is over 30 years old and is truly stunning

    The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of haute couture. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design. This beautiful pastel peach cocktail is a perfect example of his talent. The fabric used for this garment is breathtaking; beaded,sequin,rhinestone "light as a feather" triple layered silk-chiffon. I love the low-cut plunge neckline and grecian-goddess capelet bodice. As Dior said, "I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This haute-couture dress is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:36-37 inches Waist:32 inches Hips:38 inches Total Length:38 inches This vintage designer dress comes from a smoke-free house.
