    Preowned Extraordinary 1950s Helena Barbieri Pink & Gold Dress
    This Helena Barbieri Gown Is So Beautiful It Takes My Breathe Away To Look At It. The Fabric Is A Rich, Vibrant Pink Silk That Has A Wonderful Design Woven Through Its Surface In A Gold Lame Thread. This Design Runs Over The Entire Dress From The Strapless Bodice To The Hem Of The Skirt So That It Glows In The Light. The Combination Of The Pink And Gold Are Wonderful And In Person It Is Even Better Then How It Photoed And It Photoed Quite Well. The Bodice Is Fitted And Strapless And The Waist Defined With A Wide Band Of Fabric. This Tops A Beautifully Cut Skirt That Has Pleats Set Along The Hips So That You Get A Soft Fullness There. The Back Of The Skirt Is Cut So That It Has Extra Fabric To Give It A Flared Fullness That Is Wonderful. I Love The Wrapped Effect Of The Bodice And How It Gives The Illusion That After Wrapping It Around Your Bust, The End Of The Panels Tuck Through The Waist Banding. I Am Always So Pleased To Have A Helena Barbieri Piece Come Into The Shop As They Are A Rare Label To Find And Each Is Very Special. Her Specialty Was Formal Wear And Her Signatures Included Embellishment And Decadent Details Making Them Much Desired Even Now. You Would Be Hard Pressed To Find Modern Counterparts As Far As The Workmanship And Detailing In Most Of Them. The Construction Of This Dress Is Impeccable. It Is Drop Dead Gorgeous. Excellent Condition With A Small Item To Note Below.Fully Lined With Pink Silk Organza Through The Skirt And A White Muslin Through The Bodice. Ribbon Finished Seams At The Hem And Boning Through The Bodice With A Hook And Eye Interior Waist Stay. Hand Finishes. Closes With A Back Painted Metal Zipper. There Is The Slightest "loosening" Of The Thread Along The Bodice Edges At Each Side But It Does Not Effect The Appearance When On.
