A gorgeous mid-century formal gown by the Marjon Couture London fashion house. The fabric used is of the highest quality; shimmering light-weight mauve purple lined silk. The bodice of this gown is an alluring sculpted sweetheart plunge that showcases a woman's captivating bustline. The complex pleat work and chic reverse-halter really set this gown apart from others during this time. A fitted nipped-waist gives the garment the most flattering silhouette. The full length knife-pleated skirting emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A timeless look that is perfect for any modern event.
This 1950's Marjon Couture gown is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. Presents beautifully. Perfectly working side metal zipper and full lining. A pure work of art and a study in dressmaking technique. Only sign of age are some wear by the underarm seams which is not noticeable when worn. A wonderful wearable piece of fashion history.
