Exquisite vintage white Mexican wedding dress, circa 1960s by designer Gonzalo Bauer. The dress is gorgeous and of excellent quality with fine crochet inset lace. Fashioned of thick cotton with sewn in pleats "pintucking" throughout and a voluminous full skirt, the dress is a fine example of a Mexican wedding dress. Features include bell sleeves, square nceckline and metal back zipper. The dress is unlined. This is not one of the average lightweight cotton garden variety dresses; this one is of substantial weight, weighing in at nearly 2 lbs. The dress bears a label Gonzalo Bauer for Girasol, made in Mexico. This is a dress that not only exemplifies quality and beauty but also charm and elegance. Dress is in excellent vintage condition

Additional Information on the Designer:

Like other Mexican designers Tachi Castillo, and Josefa, Gonzalo Bauer is a well known designer from Mexico whose works could be spotted in boutiques in Dallas, San Antonio and Houston in the 1970s retailing for $24-$104 each. Popularity of these designs was not confined to Texas, however, as they were also carried in boutiques in the more fashion conscious cities of New York and Paris and retailed for 3-4 times the cost of those found in Texas. It was a time when the bohemian hippie vibe was at its height of popularity and ethnic influenced dresses were being sought after.

Gonzolo Bauer was born in Spain in 1938. The family fled to Mexico where Gonzalo grew up. During his college years he bagan designing and manufacturing women's apparel using hand made textiles and embroidery. He was quite successful in his endeavors but soon grew tired of the business and consequently ended it in 1993 to pursue his true passion of painting and architecture.
