"Emma Domb" Vintage 1950's Satin and Sequin Embellished Evening Gown
This incredibly rare and beautiful 1950's evening gown by Emma Domb, is the perfect piece for that special occasion.
Decorated with trailing sequin work throughout on a pink satin background, every last detail is simply perfection.
Her high bateau neckline is framed by a sleeveless cut and a fitted bodice. Her cinched in waistline is accented by tailored seams, that run the length of the bodice, accenting the female form. Her figure hugging skirt line is fitted along the hips and falls into a swooping fishtail cut to the back of skirt, where the drape of the fabric, creates an iconic hollywood silhouette.
The slim shoulder straps and deep V backline showcase the iconic design and tailoring of this piece.
