Hattie Carnegie

Strapless pale pink heavy satin heavily hand embellished bodice with gold metallic and white thread densely embroidered in scrollwork patterns; with a shower of small to large glass beads. Very reminiscent of the House of Lesage. The most amazing part of the bustier is the peplum designed in the manner of Balenciaga's Infanta. Very unusual for a Hattie Carnegie Couture creation. The peplum is constructed of wire twisting and molding the design to the body and enhancing the design of the bustier. Sheath style pink slip overlayed by huge voluminous layers of pale pink net skirt.

Bust: to 32": waist: 24": length: approx. 48"

Condition: excellent. This is a rare one-of-a-kind custom creation from the Hattie Carnegie Atelier.

Provenance: Museum
