Jacques Fath 1950s Dress with Fringed Collar

$42520% Off


Jacques Fath designed two lines of ready-to-wear per year for NY manufacturer Joseph Halper from 1949 through the mid 1950s. This black dress features some outstanding details, from its fringed cape collar and decolletage neckline to its figure-flattering flat hipband before the bias-cut full swing skirt. A further interesting detail is the faux double-breasted bodice, with buttons and bound buttonholes that actually work despite the absence of a front opening. Black silky fabric, possibly a blend. Size zipper. Some damages to fabric at back collar and on each side near waist. Size S.
