1950s strapless black swing dress // 1950s black lace trim dress // vintage party dress

$142.02

Amazing 1950s black strapless dress with beautiful off white lace trim running along the top of the bodice and down the one side of the dress. Side zipper for closure. This dress is not lined and would need some sort of undergarments underneath. The black main fabric is a a taffeta blend and would look great with a crinoline underneath for some extra volume.

"The Du-Rite dress company was one of the more prolific Canadian ready-to-wear fashion manufacturers of the 1950s and 1960s.

Max Gladstone was born in 1899 and immigrated to Canada in the early 1930’s. His future wife, Tillie Cohen, worked in a dress factory and it was she who taught Max how to sew. The couple soon owned a dress shop on College Street, sewing custom orders in the back room. When the Canadian clothing industry expanded after World War II, especially in Toronto, Max and his brother-in-law Joe Cohen founded the Du-Rite dress factory. Stylish, affordable LBD’s (Little Black Dresses) and dressy daywear were the specialty of Du-Rite" - taken from Jonathon Walford's blog (http://kickshawproductions.com/blog/?p=936)
