Outstanding pink two piece formal evening vintage dress from one of my all time American designers - Clare Potter. Her pieces are exceptionally rare and she was known for her use of vibrant colors and for her creative color combinations. She was far ahead of her time and her pieces have unique design elements that you have to see in person to appreciate - the stitching, the seams, the pleats, everything is a twist on the ordinary.
This is called a "dinner duet" in William Rose Rayon Silk Satin Faille and I am showing the original fashion layout image from the 1950's below. Mint condition from my favorite estate of vintage designer clothing I've ever handled! 17 back covered buttons, and you will love the slight peplum of the top and slight train coming from the perfectly gathered skirt in the back, and the beautiful neckline that add just the right amount of drama to this incredible ensemble!
