1950s demi couture I Magnin silk beaded dress xs | vintage wedding gown | JMC
A rare gem of 1950's dress! This gown is exquisitely made. Done in ivory silk charmeuse and hand embroidered with tiny beads and sequins in a swooping pattern. This pattern starts out close together at the top and then gets larger and more spaced as it descends the skirt. Sweetheart neckline. Wide folded cummerbund waistline. The train is yards and yards of fabric! The interior is a masterpiece with the bodice being fully boned and lined. The entire dress is lined in a silk organza. There is no designer label on this beauty (I Magnin is the store) but they did import clothing by major desingers including Jeanne Lanvin, Hattie Carnegie and Christian Dior. A true collectible masterpiece! This would make a perfect wedding dress!
