Dress designed by Jean Desses, modeled by Jeannie Patchett, photographed by Norman Parkinson, 1950.
Surprisingly for such a beautiful dress, there’s no more information included in the book, other than the year and the photographer.
All photographs taken from “The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947 – 1957“, edited by Claire Wilcox.
Second in my series on the Victoria & Albert Museum Couture exhibit at the Frist Center in Nashville. Click here for the first post.
