Vintage 1960s Black Silk Cocktail Dress - White Mink Trim - Lillie Rubin - L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a short black silk dress with white mink fur trim at the cuffs and hemline. The dress is made in a short style with turned collar. The sleeves are wrist length and would allow one to properly display a pair of evening gloves. There is a pocket built into either side along the seam lines, so as to be difficult to discern. It is fully lined and closes at the back with a metal zipper. Please note that the dress was pinned back for the photographs as it was too large for my mannequin - the fit/silhouette will be slightly different on the right sized body.
Retailer label: Lillie Rubin. Lillie Rubin, founded in Miami in 1946, was a specialty shop that offered evening gowns and special occasion wear. They were bought by La Cache in 1990 and its stores converted to La Cache in 2006. (courtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild label resource)
