An absolutely breathtaking and ultra rare creamy ivory chiffon strapless full skirted ballgown dating back to the mid 1950's. As you can see the design was heavily influenced by Christian Dior, and any French inspired fashion pieces from this period are truly coveted. The manipulation of the fabrics is truly sensational; the prettiest lace trims tiered ruffle nylon chiffon in a gorgeous swirl motif. So whimsical! The ruched bodice, complete with interior boned structure, has an alluring slightly sweetheart strapless that showcases the captivating bustline. A fitted nipped-waist with voluminous textured skirting gives the garment the most flattering 'New Look' silhouette. This epic gown would make such a stunning bridal or red carpet look!
