Gorgeous vintage 1940s 40s art deco dress.

✧ by Ambassador Fashions -- early American designer label
✧ black + pale pink rayon
✧ coral colored velvet accents at collar + cuffs
✧ elaborate beaded + rhinestone appliques at the collar
✧ asymmetrical pocket at right hip
✧ two decorative covered buttons
✧ light shoulder pads for shape
✧ fastens up the side with a covered metal zipper

This dress is absolutely exquisite! I adore the contrast between the simple shape and the fanciful art deco touches -- the vibrant coral velvet accents and the luxuriously detailed appliques. This dress would be marvelous worn with a simple pair of black or coral colored pumps and a dab of your brightest rouge, and would be perfect to wear to an art opening, to a fancy dinner party, for a 1940s style extravaganza, or for any other especially special and sophisticated event. A classic black dress that is really so very much more!

This beautiful dress was made over 60 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. There is some light soiling on the collar and cuffs and a couple of faint spots on the collar, none of which showed up in the photos, but are visible in person. Because this dress is so gorgeous and in otherwise such superb condition, I don’t think it at all takes away from the wearability or beauty of the piece. If you require additional photos please just ask! There is a single row of gold thread missing from one of the appliques, but it is not at all noticeable unless you are really examining the dress for flaws. This dress has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear; it has been priced with both its flaws and its virtues in mind. :)
