1960's Burke-Amey Couture Black Wool & Green Silk Applique Dress Suit Ensemble



Burke-Amey was started in 1959 by designer Ronald Amey, and his business partner, Joseph Burke. Amey was known for his use of interesting materials and big, bold prints. This breathtaking black and emerald-green number is a perfect example of their genuine. The fabrics alone are a masterpiece; rich fully-lined woven wool with dynamic large-scale graphic emerald silk. I love the unique detailing of this set with its complex lines and modernist approach. The blouse with built-in tap pants has a chic mock-turtleneck and wide cuff billow-sleeves. The suit jacket has a flattering built-in waist belt and deco diamond appliques. Just look at those beautiful buttons! The matching skirt is a nipped waist tailored pencil that is cut to skim over your curves. It is refined, graceful and has workmanship of the highest quality. A truly gorgeous three-piece ensemble and a beautiful example of the forward thinking from this swinging era. Measurements Jacket Bust:37-38 inches Sleeve Length:23 inches Total Length:22 inches Blouse Bust:37-38 inches Sleeve Length:23 inches Skirt Waist:28 inches Hips:40 inches Total Length:26 inches This vintage Burke-Amey designer ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working metal skirt-zipper and original covered buttons. This suit is over 40 years old and is truly stunning!
