Breathtaking Jeanne Lafaurie Couture watercolor garden two-piece gown ensemble dating back to the mid-1950's era of fashion. Jeanne Lafaurie was a Paris couturier, designing from 1925 until 1958, whose house was known for spectacular fabrics and fine draping. Andre Courreges even worked there as a draftsman in 1947 before opening his own atelier! Michel Goma became the house designer from 1950-58, when he bought the house and renamed it. I adore the watercolor floral print silk-satin which in itself is wearable art. The bodice is a seductive sculpted strapless with boning. The matching nipped-waist, long, slightly-pleated ballroom skirt finishes this masterpiece off with the perfect ethereal vibe.
This Jeanne Lafaurie Paris Couture ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. Perfectly working side metal-zipper. Signs of age are some holes to interior tulle corset and a faint very faint spots to the skirt, which blend into the watercolor pattern. Please message for detailed pictures. This ensemble is over 70 years old and is truly exquisite.
