1940's swimsuit

The 1940's was the height of glamour and fashion in Hollywood. This circa 1940's one-piece halter style gold lame swimsuit epitomizes the style and grandeur of that Old Hollywood era.

This swimsuit was designed by Margit Fellegi, head swimsuit designer of the noted swim wear manufacturer, Cole of California; Fellegi was a major contributing factor making Cole of California the leading swimsuit manufacturer for over four decades. Originally a theatrical costume designer, Fellegi became a leading swimsuit designer and is credited with revolutionizing the swim wear industry.

The swimsuit is fashioned of a gold lame stretch material. This swimsuit's design was derived from the glamorous gowns of that highly fashionable 1940's Hollywood era and, in the history of swim wear fashion, is considered iconic. This particular style is now quite rare.
