Vintage 1950s Cocktail Dress Black Sequin Taffeta with Bolero by GiGi Young - Small
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
From the 50s here's a vintage cocktail dress made by New York manufacturer GiGi Young. The dress comes with a matching rayon taffeta evening bolero jacket. The bodice of the dress is fully sequined and the dress has a spaghetti halter strap. The dress has a large taffeta bow affixed to the left side of the waist. The bow has a rhinestone flex bar through the middle of it. The skirt of the dress is made in a wraparound construction and tapers to the bottom. The dress does up the back with a metal zipper. The jacket is made in a short style with 3/4 length sleeves that have turned up cuffs. The jacket has a narrow rounded collar. There is a tuck at either side where the sleeves meet the shoulder seam.

It's in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odor. The left side of the bow was held in place by a safety pin - I've removed this, so the bow will need a small stitch to hold it in place but I will leave this to the buyer so that the bow is positioned as per personal preference.
The Gigi Young line was a sister label to the Suzy Perrette line. Great 1950s cocktail party dress.
