1950’s Debutante:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Envision a time when Couture was at its peak, people still dressed up, people went to the Opera or the ballet, chivalry was still well and truly alive and men were still men and women were still women.

Oh yes, there is no decade quite like the 1950’s! This was the decade that both Dovima and Lisa Fonssagrives modeled and Christian Dior, Cristobal Balenciaga and Hupert de Givenchy were incredibly influential haute couturiers. Roger Viver made the stiletto pump popular and women were being told off for marking wooden floors in museums with their heels!

It truly was a decade of elegance and style and this outfit captures this era perfectly in a fresh and new way. Everyone will remember you as a fabulous hostess or indeed beautiful and young debutante at a soirée. You never know, you might even find your prince charming too just like Grace Kelly did! That is why it always pays to look the part…
