1950's "Vivienne" Fifties Cocktail Dress
Vivienne is a remarkable study in contrasts. The bodice is stitched in a luxurious hunter green silk velvet off set by the airy quality of the ten layers of tulle and nylon net of the skirt. Hand stitched on the outer layer of the skirt is a net ruffle framed by silk velvet spagetti that repeats on the skirt. The cups of the bodice are layered with rayon taffeta, tulle, net and repeat the ruffle and spagetti detail from the skirt that shapes and celebrates the bust line. Vivienne has a halter strap in front that loops through the halter of the back. The bodice sports five layers, as well as boning. Both the bodice and the skirt are fully lined. This fabulous dress requires over 20 hours of hand work that is done in-house to our highest standards of quality. Vivienne is a "must have" for the Holidays.
