Vintage 1950s designer dress. This late 1950’s couture dress by early design house Emma Domb is one of the most incredible and unique vintage dresses that I have ever seen! The cut of the dress is something that neither I -- nor anyone else I’ve shown it to -- have ever come across in vintage clothing; it is truly a work of art. Done in crisp black taffeta, it features a fitted bodice, pleated details at the shoulders, a sweetheart neckline, a *hugely* puffy bubble skirt, and large taffeta roses at the waist and bottom hem. The construction of the skirt is an absolute wonder... and rather difficult to describe. It was made using tons and tons of fabric that was gathered into a huge puff, and secured more tightly at the bottom by a smaller band of fabric; it was photgraphed without a crinoline -- it really is that voluminous! Fully lined; slips over the head and fastens up the back with a covered zip. This dress is like something out of an Edward Gorey or Tim Burton dreamworld, and would be perfect for any especially special event.

This dress was made over 50 years ago -- it is truly a priceless treasure and work of art!!
