This sexy, sophisticated and chic vintage 1950s cocktail party dress by the fashion duo Nathan-Strong will be sure to catch attention with its deep plunging bodice made up of layers of gathered draped silk chiffon! The front bust features a gathered chiffon loop with a double satin bow accent at the bottom. Flattering seaming at the waistline lead way to a curve-hugging wool wiggle skirt with a kick pleat in the back – perfect for that hourglass shape!

The entire dress is lined – the chiffon bodice is lined with black nylon and the wool skirt is lined with a thin silky material. Dress closes in the back with a hidden back metal zipper and three eye/hook closures and is tagged “The New Way To Look By Nathan-Strong”

Condition: Very good! The wool skirt has 6 tiny holes – the black lining makes it impossible to see unless you are looking up close. The chiffon by underarms has lost the gathers.

Size: Bust measures 36” flat around and can pull to 37” around. Natural waist measures 27.5 - 28” max around. Hips measure 39” max around. From shoulder seam to hem, dress measures 41.5” in length.

About the designer: The Nathan-Strong duo was formed in 1945 by Robert Strong and Morris Nathan. For the larger part of the fifties, the firm employed August de Lorenzo as chief designer, who was an able hand at dreaming up dreamy cocktail dresses. Nathan-Strong cocktail dresses sold very well from the 1950s into the early 1960s.
