-1960's couture designer pauline trigere black silk (no content tags, but feels like a silk chiffon) nude illusion dress

Pauline Trigère (1908/9 – 2002) was born in Paris and immigrated to the US in 1937. By 1942 she was designing under the name “Trigère”, having spent the previous years working for Ben Gershal, Travis Banton and Hattie Carnegie.

Trigère was a master cutter; she worked directly on a live model. Her garments were known for sophisticated and structured tailoring, and the best of these were her coats and dresses made from fine wools. She even made evening dresses from wool – in designs that were elegant, never frilly or fussy.

To see Trigère’s work in action, watch the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Trigère dresses the character played by Patricia Neal. The clothes are the embodiment of dramatic sophistication.
