1950s Dorothy O'Hara DRAPED dress small | new fall JMC
A truly stunning Dorothy O'Hara dress! Done in black rayon. Draped to perfection with square neckline, bodice panels that criss cross and draped faux sarong slim skirt. Back metal zip. Front of bodice is lined, skirt is unlined.
"Dorothy O’Hara endorses the slim silhouette, exclusively, Her distinctive signature, the “all-in-one-piece” drapery, places this designer in a class of her own. She literally wraps the body in fabric and her ingenuity makes the most of a woman’s figure.
Working with the grain of the fabric and molding it to give depth to the bust and minimize the waistline, the “poured-into” style is nevertheless a step-in dress in every case. The woman can slip easily into her clothes after hairdo and makeup." Los Angeles Times, July 9, 1954
