This sale is for a gorgeous vintage dress - I have tried to get information, research this dress for information. The only thing I have found is a designers Mariano Fortuny and his stunning Delphos Dresses. This designer was one of the stars among fashion in the 20's - He was the creator of the gorgeous pleated silk fabric, all created by hand. His gowns all handmade. His labels were handmade as well, sometimes just written on the seams of the gown. I can find no writing or labels. One article said this was not uncommon. I have no way of knowing if this is a Fortuny for sure - maybe someone with more knowledge of this type of fashion can tell by looking at the photos. What I know for sure is that the gown is stunning. Sleeveless with a opening to create a backless gown. Mymannequin is too large for the dress I believe. These gowns were not made for anyone with "full curves". Measuring the gown is difficult as it stretches to flat silk if you pull it far enough. I will say SMALL - laying flat it is approx. 26" bust and 24" waist. The shoulders are sewn, the only opening is hooks and eyes down one side. I did not hook them all in the photo.
Stunning gown - for your vintage fashion collection - whether to wear or collect.
