Match Made in Heaven

In 1941, at the height of the second World War, Anthony Traina and Norman Norell teamed up to form Traina-Norell. Due to the war, women in the United States were unable to access french designer clothing. The gap left by the French designers was quickly filled by Traina-Norell as they produced evening wear of the highest caliber for their discerning socialite clientele.

This lovely black and bubble-gum pink party dress is perfect for the holiday party season. The black bustier top has internal boning and two spaghetti straps. The skirt portion has a slight drop waist and an internal crinoline sewn into the bottom of the skirt. Just below the waist is a pink bow that wraps around the hips. Classic and chic, when paired with a nice fur wrap nothing could be better.

Traina-Norell black and bubble-gum pink satin dress with hip bow, 1950. Contemporary size 4-small 6.
