vintage 1950's dress ...classic Suzy Perette black velvet and matte cocktail party dress
true vintage 1950's Suzy Perette cocktail party dress with extraordinary design details throughout...
The Suzy Perette silhouette of cinched waist and full skirt were extremely popular in the early fifties and a quality interpretation of Dior’s famous “new look.” Sidney Blauner, whose manhattan firm turned out the Suzy Perette label, acquired the right to incorporate Dior’s notions in their designs- and this dress is a fabulous example!
- classic silhouette with a fitted bodice and a full sculptural skirt
the skirt starts with what feels like a silk (no content labels to confirm) matte taffeta with exceptional horizontal and diagonal pleating at the back that gives the illusion of a giant bow, then finished with an actual bow. it's lined with pellon for a more structured shape. the front has an overlay of the same exquisite velvet as the bodice
bodice is a rich luxurious black velvet with sculptural straps at the front that merge with a full back at the graceful neckline
back metal zipper
