This is a stunning and so rare designer vintage party dress / evening gown set with matching jacket. Made of pure grey colored silk from one of our favorite high end stores I. Magnin & Co. They were the Saks Fifth Avenue of their day. This party dress has boning in the strapless bodice, a side metal zipper and a very full skirt. There are no layers or lining underneath. We are happy to report it's too big for our mannequin so it's a nice wearable size. It's a true modern Small/MED to MEDIUM. A perfect holiday party dress!
This dress was used in the famous movie GREASE. In the scene where Sandy is angry & leaving the dance contest after being pushed aside for the latin girl, she stops for a few seconds pausing at the exit door before she leaves. Right next to Sandy there's a girl who's wearing this dress & you can see up close the woven detail in the silk fabric, it is the same dress. She's not wearing the jacket. If cared for this dress set will only go up in value.
