Rendered in the most sumptuous shade of coral pink silk faille, this original 1950's dress , accented by a stylised wrap design along the skirt, is just the touch of colour your wardrobe was looking for.
The V shaped neckline is framed by wide shoulder straps and a sleeveless cut. The fitted bodice is accented delicate bust seams and tailored darts, which draw the eye to the cinched in waistline. The detailed waist, is decorated with a matching fabric faille bow, which draws the eye to the pleats that radiate from beneath it, to join the curved top panel of the skirt, in a stylised mock cross over design. Finished with an A line cut skirt, this eye-catching dress showcases the iconic silhouette of the late 1950's. The skirt is lined in interfacing .
