Simply astounding evening dress ensemble by Pauline Trigere. The ensemble consists of a dramatic skirt and matching cardigan. The skirt is maxi length with an A - line silhouette and narrow waistband. The cardigan is hip length, with long sleeves and an open front. The ensemble is fabulous, with sheer black base and scalloped devore burnout velvet that shimmers beautifully. Wear with a black silk romper (or our listed silver lame Pauline Trigere romper!) topped with the cardigan tucked wrap - like into the skirt for some 70s studio 54 fabulousness!
Beautiful gold and cream cocktail ensemble consisting of a dress and matching swing coat. The dress is knee length, with short sleeves, a bateau boat neckline, and a fitted sheath silhouette. The neckline features a curved Chinese design that complements the fabric of the ensemble. The coat is knee length as well, with a hem that lines up with the cocktail dress. The coat has long sleeves, a straight front with hidden closure near the clavicle, and an amazing accent collar that drapes around the wearers shoulders and rises above the neck for an elegant effect. The coat is structured but comfortable, with pleats on the back for ease of move and added grace. The lining of the coat is gold, and features stitched designs of Chinese symbols. Breast pocket is accented with a zig-zag folded ribbon trim. Simply divine and straight from the 60s! The dress was made for the Pee-X Clothiers Boutique inside Hong Kong's Ambassador Hotel in Kowloon.
The hotel opened in the 1960s and was famous for the massive 17 story tiled mosaic mural on its side, depicting Confucius visiting different Chinese provinces.
Astounding neon red evening dress ensemble consisting of a dress and long coat by George Stavropoulos! The red dress is maxi length, with spaghetti straps and a columnar silhouette. The dress features a thin, triangular, double layer of fabric that emerges from the neckline and falls down to the waist, adding a bit of complexity and movement to the dress. The sheer coat is maxi length as well, with a straight front and button closure at the neckline. The dress has amazing kimono sleeves with an open bottom, allowing for maximum sway and flutter. The dress includes a matching silk scarf.
George Stavropoulos was born in Tripoli in 1920. He studied fashion in Paris, and eventually opened his own salon in Athens in 1949, where he made a name for himself creating elegant chiffon draped grecian - style dresses often cut on the bias. He immigrated the United States in 1961, opening a boutique in New York where he continued to receive acclaim for his floating silk satin and chiffon creations. Stavropoulos created his gowns almost exclusively by hand, and did not use heavy ornamentation, preferring that his designs stand out due of their elegant, flowing silhouettes and fabrics.
Clients include: Elizabeth Taylor, Maria Callas, Lady Bird Johnson, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Barbara Streisand.
