I used to know something about the designer of this very Joan Holloway Mad Men wiggle dress, Georgette Trilere. All I recall now is her dresses sold at high end stores such as I. Magnin, back in the day. In this case, 'the day' is the early 1960s.

This vintage hourglass bombshell dress made me think of Joan immediately. It's SO something she'd wear. The waist is nipped and has a wide ruched cummerbund encircling it, emphasizing the bust.

The bodice is fitted, with a seductive low V neckline, draped from the cap sleeves and crossing over to form the low neckline. This is one heck of a shapely cocktail dress!

Oh, I did find one snippet about Georgette Trilere. In the early 1970s she appeared as a guest on a TV interview show called 'Boutique,' with Charleton Heston. Obviously although she's somewhat forgotten now, back then she was well known. Every piece of hers I've had has been lovely, and this is no exception.

Pair with stilettos and diamond or rhinestones at the throat and/or wrist, and get ready to channel your inner Joan!
