1950's Alix of Miami Crane Bird Novelty Applique Black Cotton One-Shoulder Dress
Stunning 1950's "Alix of Miami" designer femme fatale dress from the Old Hollywood era of glamour! The bodice has an alluring asymmetric one-shoulder design with heavily sculpted shelf-bust. The over-sized hand painted silk crane bird applique gives the garment so much appeal and interest. Just look at the sparkling rhinestones! The draped sarong wiggle-skirt construction, in divine polished cotton, emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of dress celebrity vixens, like Marilyn Monroe, made infamous. A wonderful piece of wearable fashion history.
This Alix of Miami designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. Perfectly working original back metal-zipper. Only sign of wear is one faint spot to the hand painted applique which blends in when worn. Please message for detailed pictures. This garment is over 60 years old and is truly exquisite.
