I’ve been feeling in a fashion-y mood lately, especially with the research I’ve been doing for the next production I’m working on. I thought I’d gather a few images of dresses I just think are beautiful for your feasting pleasure:
Wonderful sleeves and voluminous skirt on a Jacques Fath design, 1951. Found here.
Irene Lentz-Gibbons – Silk brocade and chiffon dress, 1958. Found at Coletterie.com in a very interesting article about Irene here.
The most beautiful embroidery on an evening dress by Lanvin, made by Antonio Castillo, 1957. Found in the wonderful V&A online collection here.
Balenciaga Haute Couture-A/W 1967. Found on Pinterest and pinned to my fashion board here. I love the unusual shape and exciting embellished front.
Lovely 1950s Silk Chiffon Beaded dress. Found on an now sold Etsy listing here.
